Encounters with country: landscapes of Ray Crooke, presents an in-depth focus on the Australian landscape paintings of Queensland artist Ray Crooke (b. 1922). While Crooke is widely known and highly regarded for his paintings of island life in the Torres Strait and the islands of Fiji, this remains an incomplete picture of this artist’s oeuvre. Equal to his finest paintings are Crooke’s landscape studies of Cape York and the remote Gulf Country of far-north Queensland.
This exhibition was organised by Cairns Regional Gallery. It was curated by Gavin Wilson.
