My son and I travelled from Melbourne to Warrnambool last week to see Helmut Lueckenhausen’s exhibition at the The Warrnambool Art Gallery (WAG).
And what an exhibition! Helmut Lueckenhausen has created a significant body of work. And the WAG needs to be acknowledged for putting on such a large exhibition with all the details and grunt work that entails.
It was great to see how Helmut’s works has evolved, and it was pleasing to travel back to the 70's and 80's era wood making, and I enjoyed the gutsy changes in direction his work has taken over the years.
If at all possible, do visit this exhibition. But if time and distance makes this impossible at least watch this video and take a look at the exhibition page on the WAG website.
