John Ashcroft LA TÊTE exhibition of painitngs
Date Thu 13th Dec 2018 to Sun 10th Feb 2019
Exhibition Dates: Thursday December 13th 2018 - Sunday February 10th 2019

Exhibition Launch: Saturday January 19th 2019 at 6pm

Throughout history, the head has been the focus of enhancement in the form of hairstyles, hats, bonnets, cosmetics and jewellery - especially during the Renaissance when the inner essence of a sitter was intended to be revealed by the artist.

Yet while artists such as Bronzino, Raphael and Donatello are exalted, the names of hatters, milliners, jewellers and hair stylists remain unheard.

It could be argued that these unnamed artisans were the abstract sculptors of their day. Hence, LA TÊTE explores the idea of the head as the sculptor's mandrel.

John Ashcroft (Senior) is a Melbourne artist, his works are full of colour and vibrancy which matches his passion for art.
