The Window

Curated by Paul Scott-Williams

10 jul. — 15 aug. 2020

The Winter edition of The Window has been curated by Paul Scott-Williams, CEO and Artistic Director of Hume Conservatorium.  

Selecting Jason Benjamin's exquisite work, 'The Calling' 2019, Paul writes...

'As I observed the work I was drawn into its mystery and contrasts. On the surface, I recognise an Australian landscape not unlike that in which I grew up. But deeper observation reveals a harshness and sense of desolation that is confronting, particularly in the context of the deep drought and horrific fires we have recently endured. Nothing moves. Is there shimmering heat or icy cold mist in the air? '

He grew up in the NSW regional town of Boorowa and  moved to Sydney and studied classical voice, piano and music education at the State Conservatorium of Music.
