A Single Mind

Rick Amor

Rick Amor has exhibited professionally for over thirty years, and has developed a reputation as one of Australia’s most significant contemporary figurative painters. A single mind celebrates Amor’s artistic vision, offering for the first time a complete assessment of his painted oeuvre, from the 1960s to the present day.

Art Exhibition previously on at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 22 March 2008 to Sunday 13 July 2008

Occupying Heide’s Central Galleries, the exhibition will feature key paintings and supporting works on paper that trace the formal and thematic concerns the artist has maintained and developed across his career. Although well known for his disquieting urban and coastal landscapes, and expressive portraits, a number of previously unseen works from the 1960s and 1970s will reveal a less familiar aspect of Amor’s practice.

This formative period is revealed as a most fertile and experimental phase, during which Amor began to develop what have become his signature subjects, such as the fugitive ‘running man’, and provides new perspectives from which to consider the influences and explorations that have shaped his development as an artist.
