Bourn in Melbourne, Rebecca Hossack moved to England in the 1980s and set up two art galleries in London. She is a kind of an ambassador of art between the two countries, bringing work from her native home and sharing it with us. Hossack's most recently opened exhibition is just just an example. Australia: People and Places explores both aboriginal and modern art, and is spread across both her gallery on Charlotte Street and on Conway Street until the 26th October. Whichever is easiest for you to get to, there will be an eclectic mix of both forms.
Hossack showcases work that examine the natives' relationship with the land, as they are faced with the challenges of vast terrain, and extreme climate. There is a focus on both Aboriginal traditions found in the tribal patterns by Clifford Possum, and examples of European influence such as Robert Brownhall's urban and seaside landscapes, which feature leisure activities on the Golden Coast.
