Robert Hunter retrospective reviewed in The Age

28th Apr 2018

Ray Edgar has reviewed Robert Hunter’s NGV retrospective, published in today's issue of The Age:

"Just as we experience architecture through light and space, appreciating Hunter's work requires active engagement: moving around the painting, occupying the space and responding to the physical qualities of light, material and space that bring the painting to life. The work can appear both as a depthless window onto the world, and a repeating pattern that extends beyond the frame”.
