176 / Margaret Olley

The main show currently at our regional gallery is 
about the late artist Margaret Olley; some of the
rooms of her house have been recreated.

the rooms figured in many of her works & its fascinating to see 
the interaction, its all of a piece: the overlays of paint
echo the profusion 

the whole place was a work in progress 

one gets the impression it was both subject, studio, &
expression of her personality

I appreciated the paintings more 
through seeing - more or less - where they were created
