Exhibition of Oil Paintings and Pastels by Lina Bryans, Georges Gallery, Melbourne, 1966
Lina Bryans: A retrospective exhibition, National Gallery of Victoria at Banyule Gallery, cat. 68, 21 September - 28 November 1982 (touring exhibition)
In 1965 Lina Bryans followed in the footsteps of her former lover and mentor William Frater, travelling and painting in central Australia, anticipating Brett Whiteley, John Coburn, Jeffrey Makin et. al. with paintings of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is notable that the titles she gave these works were the Indigenous names, not the 'Ayers Rock' and 'Olgas' then in common usage. This microcosmic abstraction of a rockface at Kata Tjuta she called Face of Liru, a reference to the Anangu poisonous snake dreaming connected to the site. 'While a lone eagle soared overhead, Bryans painted a closer view of the mysterious...rockface, depicting its weird pattern of cavities and lichens, and respecting its ancient heritage' 1
