BILL HENSON - Sep 16, 2017 - Dec 11, 2017

Each of the works included has a palpable sense of the cinematic and together they form an enigmatic imaginative statement. Like much of his work, there is little that is explicit, and rather the works propose open-ended narratives and capture a transitory sensation. 

A powerful sense of mystery and ambiguity can be found within the images, heightened by the deep blackness of the shadows and the striking use of chiaroscuro to selectively obscure and reveal the form of the nudes, sculptures and the landscape itself.

Bill Henson is a National Gallery of Victoria touring exhibition.
