Prices: $5 – $20


To walk into Olley’s home was like walking into a painting. With its fresh paint, rich colours and warm sentiment, the house was a true commemoration of the still-life and interiors tradition in Australian art.

Painted between 1972 and 2011, the artworks in this exhibition reveal the house as a living work of art, while the photographs document the passing years and affirm the aura of the interior spaces.
