Rodney will discuss selected paintings in the Ledger Collection including favourites by John Russell, Clara Southern, Roy de Maistre and Grace Cossington Smith.

What did each of these artworks reveal and how has Rodney’s research led to a better understanding of their context and significance? 
Rodney James is an independent curator and writer with 30 years-experience in the visual arts sector. His most recent books include a monograph on Melbourne printmaker Ian Gardiner, a forthcoming study on the life and pottery of Una Deerbon, and work in progress on the Herald art critic Alan McCulloch.

Secrets of the Studio: Ivan Durrant in Conversation

Join Benalla Art Gallery Director Bryony Nainby in conversation with artist Ivan Durrant to discuss his approach to painting, highlights from his career and his current exhibition, Colouring Lake Mokoan.

Ivan’s paintings of Lake Mokoan’s shimmering water and drowned stag trees are presented alongside studies of the paint palettes he used to create them. In this conversation Ivan will share his way of seeing the world as patterns of light and form, and the creative processes through which he materialises this vision through paint.
Ivan Durrant is an Australian painter and performance artist whose work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, many Australian state and regional galleries, private collections and the British Museum.  The National Gallery of Victoria will present a major career survey exhibition of his work in 2021.
