Sydney Sun 1965 is an important work in John Olsen’s artistic career and in the history of Australian art. The painting was undertaken at a time when the artist was receiving widespread acclaim for his innovative approach to painting and imaginative response to the local environment. The work made a considerable impact when it was first exhibited. Nothing quite like it had ever been seen before. The significance of Olsen’s approach was that he conveyed not only external visible reality but also a world that is felt and experienced. As the artist himself explained, he wanted to create an “all-at-once world; a totality of experience”.
Sydney Sun on display in the National Gallery of Australia collection, Sydney Sun is a dramatic, large scale work in three panels. Sydney Sun was initially and brilliantly conceived as a ceiling painting, it is an optimistic, life-enhancing image, encompassing the artist’s passionate response to a sense of place and to the natural world. This is for those that can see it with their hearts very clearly conveyed in Sydney Sun through the magical vitality of the golden-orange sun: radiating warmth and energy to all living things.
