About the artist: Over a career spanning 60 years, Frank Bowling has continued to explore the nature and possibilities of paint. The historically significant work Africa to Australia is from Bowling’s key ‘map paintings’ series. The work was first shown in a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1971, which is still considered one of the artist’s most celebrated exhibitions, and firmly established his practice in the United States. In the monumental Africa to Australia, distinct sections of stained color are grounded by the outline of a map, an orchestration of the emotive potential of paint to communicate a visual experience of uniquely sensuous immediacy.
