Joe Furlonger: Survey

Spanning from the late 1980s to present day, the artistic career of Joe Furlonger is celebrated in this survey of painting, works on paper and ceramics that oscillate between figuration and abstraction. Major thematic subjects are represented including Furlonger’s bathers, mother and child, animals and circus series. While globetrotting landscape works depict the mountains of China to the central desert of Australia, the Eastern Downs and Darling Downs of Queensland and out to the seascapes of the Capricorn Coast.
