Ned Kelly Series

Location: perth
Highly respected artist William Boissevain (OBE) presents a progressive narrative of works in this exhibition featuring one of Australia’s central tenets – Ned Kelly. The brutality of the times, the impenetrable environment, and the impossibility of survival are rendered with the same sure strokes Boissevain would use to bring to life a vase of flowers or delicately outline a figure. Here are real people and iconic events, freshly imagined and represented with the almost religious fervour that Australians reserve for their larrikin history.
