Who turned the Light On?








I remember selecting this work, Kevin Connor’s portrait of Robert Klippel that won him the Archibald Prize in 1977.  As students you are asked to copy a work and then “do” one in that style.  This work was my moment…I remember being so excited, realising that painting was about relationships, balance, colour,movement – it did it all for me.  For some reason it is one book missing in my collection (that will most certainly be resolved) but continuously loan it from the library, looking back, trying to capture that moment.  Kevin Connor by Barry Pearce
