Last week the Australian surrealist painter James Gleeson passed away at the age of 92. Gleeson has been exhibiting in Australia for more than 70 years.
Whilst surrealism was never my favorite ism, I liked how James Gleeson didn’t feel it necessary to change like fashion. He found a certain way of painting that suited him and explored it all his life.

“I’ve never accepted the external appearance of things as the whole truth.. The world is much more elaborate than the nerves of our eye can tell us.” James Gleeson Quote
