The original version of this painting dates to 2006 and was exhibited at the Parts of the Whole exhibition at the Conrad Wilde Galley in 2007.

A couple of years after it returned from Conrad-Wilde, I decided to rework it and added another layer.

Robert Hughes: Things I Didn’t Know

March 1, 2011

“Robert Hughes has trained his critical eye on many major subjects, from the city of Barcelona to the history of his native Australia. Now he turns that eye inward, onto himself and the world that formed him. Hughes analyzes his experiences the way he might examine a Van Gogh or a Picasso. From his relationship with his stern and distant father to his Catholic upbringing and school years; and from his development as an artist, writer, and critic to his growing appreciation of art and his exhilaration at leaving Australia to discover a new life, Hughes’ memoir is an extraordinary feat of exploration and celebration.”
