A portrait of love, life and loss
Storm in a Teacup, ABC, Tuesday at 9.30pm
RENOWNED West Australian artist Leon Pericles embarks on his biggest challenge yet — a retrospective exhibition of his life’s works — while witnessing the increasing mental decline of his wife and collaborator Moira (both pictured) as Alzheimer’s disease turns their world upside down.
A master painter and printmaker, Pericles’ work is held in all Australian state galleries, the National Gallery and private collections around the world, but he would never have achieved this level of success without his greatest supporter by his side.
Told through the eyes of their daughter Nia, this uplifting, raw and emotionally engaging documentary explores love, life and loss.
