Bushrangers and rogues at Rokeby

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

A six-part se­ries on 1860s bushranger Ben Hall will be on show at the stu­dio of Rokeby artist Phil Hen­shall this week­end.

Phil put to­gether the Ben Hall se­ries in 2013 based on a poem he wrote, “The Lach­lan Cava­lier”.

The orig­i­nal por­trait had Ben look­ing di­rectly at the cam­era. How­ever, Phil en­deav­oured to place the viewer in his stu­dio watch­ing the pho­to­graph be­ing taken.

The Ben Hall se­ries, plus some por­traits of other rogues and char­ac­ters, will be on show and for sale at Phil’s stu­dio on Satur­day and Sun­day.

The se­ries won’t be sep­a­rated for sale, but in­di­vid­ual pieces are avail­able for six-month lease.

Phil’s stu­dio is lo­cated 1116 Main Neerim Rd, Rokeby.

The stu­dio is open to the pub­lic on the sec­ond week­end of the month or by ap­point­ment, with a min­i­mum of six theme changes per year.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call 0418 318 187.
