paintings from France
Perhaps the best works are by Christian Bonnefoi. They consist of huge, confident calligraphic brush-strokes and terrific colour. They’re awash with energy, tension and grace."- Sebastian Smee, Pulitzer prize-winning art critic at the Boston Globe writing in the Sydney Morning Herald in 1997
CHRISTIAN BONNEFOI has had over 100 solo exhibitions in Europe, Asia, USA and Australia since 1977. He had the honour of a major retrospective at the Pompidou museum in Paris in 2008. Bonnefoi lives and works in France. This is his fourth solo exhibition at Annandale Galleries.View Exhibition


paintings from South Korea
YOUNG-HA PARK has had nearly thirty solo exhibitions since 1983 and is a past recipient of the ‘Korean Artist of the Year’. The fascinating and original textures in his work have made him popular with both collectors and especially other artists. Young-Ha Park lives and works in Seoul. This is his third solo show at Annandale Galleries. View Exhibition
