The Art of Gordon Bennett

Have you seen the ArtBank 2020 series where prominent Australians look at artists from the ArtBank collection?

Here is a video we wanted to draw your attention to. Wesley Enoch, deadly Stradbroke Island man, and Artistic Director of the Queensland Theatre Company, discusses his passion for the art of Aboriginal artist Gordon Bennett.

His mix of the content which is a mix of the poetic and the personal, where it just comes out of him, and he’s commenting on the world, its politics, the corporal nature of the world, with his body, but also an artistic comment, that he uses references that are not just Indigenous references but he’s looking for artistic references from all over the globe.
