 Ivan Durrant: Barrier Draw

.

Description

Described as the enfant terrible of Australian art, Ivan Durrant is a leading exponent of photorealist painting as well as a sculptor, filmmaker, performance artist and writer.

Durrant first achieved public notoriety in 1975 when he deposited the carcass of 'Beverly the cow' in the NGV forecourt with the intention to shock those who could be horrified at the death of an animal but also happily eat steak for dinner.

Ivan Durrant: Barrier Draw traces the evolution of Durrant's diverse artistic career. It includes his earliest folk paintings; the realist paintings, short films and sculptures of the 1970s and 1980s; his controversial and politically-motivated performance works; through to his evocative 'soft-focus' shed, football and racing paintings of the 1990s and 2000s.

In addition to existing works, Durrant has produced a new larger-than-life sculpture to astonish visitors to the exhibition.
