We are delighted to announce that the Art Gallery of New South Wales has selected the triptych, 'Blind Leading the Blind', the major work by Robert Boynes from his recent solo exhibition 'In Plain Sight.

This wonderful artwork, imbued with a political edge, depicts asylum seekers and refugees, touching on a dark period in Australian politics that will be looked back on with great sorrow. The surface is worked with a new technique, the canvas being crushed then flattened creating a physical texture in amongst the layers of painting and screen printing.
