PEOPLE ARE STRANGE
The Cbus Collection of Australian Art

29 November – 8 March 2015

 

People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down
-The Doors

Figurative paintings by artists including Charles Blackman, George Baldessin and Arthur Boyd reveal the bizarre and often haunting relationship between artists and the people around them.
