Anthony Lister at Olsen Irwin in Sydney

anthony lister exhibition in sydney

The last time I mentioned Anthony Lister on Art News Blog I stopped posting for 3 years. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen again as I’m enjoying being back, it’s good therapy. Anyway, he’s showing at Olsen Irwin in Sydney at the moment.

I really do like Anthony Lister’s work. Not all of it as he seems to be very experimental and doesn’t always hit the target, but that’s why I think he’s great. My theory is, if you’re not doing shit work on a regular basis you’re not pushing far enough. If all your work is great, it’s probably all very boring too.

Here’s a few beauties from the exhibition..
