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
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.
