Jon Molvig: Maverick

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

14 September 2019 – 2 February 2020 - 

Free Entry

Jon Molvig (1923-70) spent the greater part of his productive life in Brisbane where he dominated the art scene into the late 1960s. Brisbane was the catalyst for his major work, providing him with scope for his expressionist view of the world. Outspoken and rebellious, Molvig was also a charismatic teacher whose uncompromising commitment to painting inspired a group of young artists. This survey acknowledges his contribution to the local art community, features his early, vibrant works drawing on European influences and brings his stylistic eclecticism to the fore.

Accompanying the exhibition, the first substantial publication on Jon Molvig for three decades, will feature new scholarship on Molvig’s unique contribution to Australian art.
