Join MAGNT Senior Curator of Art, Bryony Nainby, for this talk discussing the 1979 Archibald prize finalist painting, A true Territorian: Portrait of Grandma Lum Loy painted by Geoff La Gerche, dubbed an ‘eyeball realist’ for his super-scaled portraits. Following formal studies in Melbourne, La Gerche spent years in London at the Royal College of Art before returning to Australia. In 1979, he took up an artist residency in Darwin, which is where he produced this portrait.
