Powerful and vulnerable, this eclectic collection of Craig Ruddy’s portraits of David Gulpilil reflect a multitude of David’s character including his vulnerability whilst recently going through medical treatment. The exhibition ranges from the larger than life, public and defiant 2004 Archibald Prize winning “Two Worlds” (its first public showing in 17 years) to intimate offscreen portraits of the screen legend. These later works were created over several years after artist and actor met again in Gulpilil’s Murray’s Bridge home. The portraits reflect the delicate transition as Gulpilil faces life and mortality – doing it, as always, his own way.
