Figure on a Sandstone Ground: Considering Brett Whiteley's Rock Art

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This article discusses the work of Australian artist Brett Whiteley, with particular emphasis on a suite of rock paintings he made in western NSW. It examines these paintings through the lenses of art history and rock art studies, to consider how we might better understand this unique body of work in the context of Whiteley's legacy. A preliminary reading of this unique artwork is presented and it is proposed that together art historical and rock art research methods provide insight into Whiteley's creative practice and the potential of interdisciplinary research.
