Listening to Paintings

itunes-logoOn Sunday, 3rd November 1996, the ABC’s “Sunday Afternoon” with Mary Delahunty presented a profile of the work of West Australian artist and musician Brendon Darby, whose combination of original paintings and music have met with much critical acclaim and demand from art buyers. His exhibition entitled “Listening to Paintings – Kakadu” sold out and a subsequent book, portfolio of prints and CD of the music has since been in continuous demand.

Following his exhibiton in Sydney (July 1997), Brendon embarked on his new project, “Listening To Paintings- Australia”. As the name suggests, this endeavour was to take Brendon all over Australia in an attempt to describe it’s incredible variety with both paint and music. Although the project was interrupted for seven months http://healthsavy.com/product/adderal/ with a major commission from Hamersley Iron Ltd (September – March ’99), Brendon has finally visited the 10 locations and completed the project.

The “Listening To Paintings” project contemplated the following:

  • Ten Major Paintings
  • 11 Musical compositions, including the theme
  • A presentation pack containing a CD, DVD and booklet of the images
  • Exhibition with video and live music presentation which premiered in New York at the American Museum of Natural History in January 2007

Brendon’s solo exhibition “A Progress Report”, presenting some work resulting from the “Listening To Paintings – Australia” project, was on exhibition at Stafford Studios of Fine Art in July 2000.
