Brett Whiteley has always been an artist whose works attract controversy. I have recently had two Whiteley works offered for sale from a private client – they can be seen on the website. What struck me with both of these pieces is the way that Whiteley allows for the art to speak for itself. They are very delicate pieces. In ‘The Waves’ Whitely counterpoints his brilliant drawing skills with a grace that stays true to the subject. These works are good reminder that much of Brett Whiteley’s best art has a lyrical quality that is at odds with the more cliched aspects of his reputation.
