Letham Gallery is proud to present the expressive master of the grandeur, one of Australia’s top selling artists, Bernard Ollis. Whilst this exhibition is the culmination of recent visits, the inspiration behind Parisian Reflections began in the summer of 1974, when Ollis won a scholarship from the Royal College of Art London, where he was a Masters student in painting. The prize granted him four months in a grand studio, on the banks of the Seine, a stone’s throw from Notre Dame, at the Cite International des Arts Paris.

All Artists refer to a defining moment in their careers; this was singularly and cumulatively Ollis’s. He went to Paris as an art student and came back an artist.

Parisian Reflections sees Ollis’s portrayal of a moment in an expressive, energetic style and a perfectly considered colour match. The result is a collection of works drawn from the inspiration of the hundreds of gouaches, unstretched canvases, pen and ink sketches and oil pastel study works which covered every square inch of his studio walls in the years to follow.

It is both a personal acknowledgment of a continuously inspiring city and a celebration of what the French call the joie de vivre!
