Rover Thomas

Selected paintings from The Holmes à Court Collection

11 Brown Street, East Perth WA 6004
Start Date
24 March, 2000
End Date
23 April, 2000

This exhibition takes a focused look at one of Australia’s most respected artists. Rover Thomas painted his country as he saw it with natural pigments and gums.  He has left a legacy of paintings like none other.  These are the simple, yet powerful statements of his love of the land – the Kimberley region – and his love of life.

“Rover Thomas was an artist, above and isolated from all else…  Rover had an intense awareness of the land, and a special affinity with pigments…he would carefully and slowly handle each sample comparing their textures and tonal differences;… Rover has taken the pigments and shown you the country…” Mary Màcha
