Art by Jane Bennett -Paintings from The Hungry Mile &amp; Barangaroo

  1. 1. Jane Bennett Artist Industrial & Maritime Heritage Frances Keevil Galleries Bay Village 28-34 Cross St Double Bay NSW 2028 Tel: 61 + 2 9327 2475 [email_address] www.franceskeevilart.com.au/Jane_Bennett.htm From the ‘Hungry Mile’ To Barangaroo
  2. 2. BEFORE & AFTER THE HUNGRY MILE 2007 BARANGAROO 2008 <ul><li>DH166 “The yard from the office” oil on canvas 100 x 122cm 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>DH179 “The empty wharf from shed 5“ oil on canvas 100 x 122cm 2008 </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Painting Sydney's Industrial Heritage </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>    I began to paint & draw Sydney 's industrial & maritime heritage in the early 1980's. </li></ul><ul><li>  Almost everything that I have painted has either been demolished or changed beyond all recognition. </li></ul><ul><li>  The pubs have been gentrified, the woolstores have been converted into apartments, & formerly gritty industrial areas have been transformed into entertainment venues. </li></ul><ul><li>www.franceskeevilart.com.au/Jane_Bennett.htm </li></ul><ul><li>www.onehundred.sl.nsw.gov.au/100-objects/Exhibit-095.aspx </li></ul><ul><li>www.artfiles.com.au/janebennett </li></ul>
  4. 4.   Unlike many artists I usually work on site to capture the elusive spirit of place. I set up my easel by the side of the road, on windswept rooftops & on demolition sites. Unpredictable weather, constantly changing light, distractions from workman & passers-by – are more than compensated for by the depth of knowledge I have gained about the hidden gems of Sydney.  I see Sydney in all its moods, from the pearly calm of early morning, the brilliant cobalt sea and sky of a warm summer’s day, to dramatic storms & the jewel-like city skyline at night.
  5. 5. P103 “Building Star City Casino”1994 oil on canvas 92 x 122 cm The bright red ship in the background was the soon to be notorious ‘Tampa’, one of the numerous Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet of Ro-ros. (Then it was owned by Barber Blue Sea.) <ul><li>Between1985 – 1996 I painted the East Darling Harbour Wharves from vantage points around the Sydney Harbour Foreshore. These next 3 works were painted in Pyrmont, from the roof of the Pyrmont Power Station (now replaced by the Star City Casino) </li></ul>
  6. 6. “ Casino Site from the top of Pyrmont Power Station” 1996 oil on board 40x89cm
  7. 7.  ” Casino Site from the top of Pyrmont Power Station” 1996 oil on board 40 x 89cm <ul><li>The long narrow building on the left, Pier 13, was once connected to Jones Bay Road by a land bridge. Then Pier 13 became the temporary casino, painted a hideous shade of bright yellow & the land bridge was demolished. Jones Bay Road has since been renamed Pirrama Road & now a leads to the steps of Star City Casino. </li></ul><ul><li>  The brilliantly coloured ships in the background are painted to scale; they were so immense that they towered over the buildings.  </li></ul>
  8. 8. “ Star City Casino site 2”1996 oil on canvas 122 x 180 cm
  9. 9. &quot;Star City Casino site 2&quot; 1996 oil on canvas 122 x 180 cm <ul><li>  This birds-eye view of construction gives an idea of the grand scale of the project. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>At that stage, despite being partially demolished, the remaining section of the Pyrmont Power Station was still fully operational & still provided most of the electricity for the western side of the C.B.D.  </li></ul><ul><li>  This was one of the last paintings I completed from the roof of the Pyrmont Power Station, hence its monumental scale. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1996 I won the prestigious Marten Bequest Travelling Art Scholarship & made several journeys to Europe & the U.S.A. over the next 2 years. </li></ul>
  10. 10. GT6A The 'Emergency Response' boats moored at Goat Island 1992 oil on canvas 31 x 41 cm <ul><li>Painted from Ball’s Head on the North Shore. The blue ship in the background is probably either the ‘Caledonie Express’ or the ‘Forum Samoa’. </li></ul>
  11. 11. U87 “Evening, Sydney Harbour Bridge from Port Jackson Towers” 2004 oil on canvas 91x168cm The Port Jackson Towers, above North Sydney Olympic Pool, provided a vantage point for a panorama of the entire harbour. I included this painting to show the area in context with the geography of Sydney.
  12. 12. W27 “Walsh Bay Wharves 6,7,8,9” 1999 oil on canvas 122 x 152cm <ul><li>The Emergency response boats of Sydney Ports Corporation docked at Moore’s Wharf & shed 3 are in the background of Pier 8/9 (later home of Murdoch Magazines & Patrick Corporation) & Pier 6/7 (later demolished) of Walsh Bay Wharves. </li></ul>
  13. 13. O16 East Darling Harbour from Observatory Hill 2000 pastel on paper 56x76cm <ul><li>One of the Wallenius ships & the L2 crane from the western side of Observatory Hill. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Artist in Residence at East Darling Harbour Wharves <ul><li>I have painted many aspects of Miller's Point & the East Darling Harbour Wharves over the last 20 years, but as soon as I became aware of the developments in store for this precinct, I became Artist in Residence on the wharf itself, painting a comprehensive overview of all the stevedoring activities. </li></ul><ul><li>I painted this series of works, not out of nostalgia but as part of a greater historical narrative, to show the transition of Sydney into the be exhibiting space! post-industrial era in visual terms. I then continued to paint the demolition of the sheds & the preparations for World Youth Day, as well as a bird's eye view of the World Youth Day festivities from the vantage point of the control room in the Sydney Harbour Control Tower.  </li></ul><ul><li>Many of these works won major art prizes & have been displayed in prestigious exhibitions. This is only a small selection of the over 500 paintings I have completed of this fascinating area. Although I have sold some of these paintings I have kept a core group of the most significant ones for the future. . </li></ul>

  18. 18. These are a few of the Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet of Ro-ros (roll-on, roll-off) or car ships. The Wallenius (originally a Swedish company)ships were green & named after operas. The Wilhelmsen (originally from Norway) ships were vermilion & all their names started with the letter “T”. Each ship was subtly different, but there were 4 basic types, Marks I – IV & within each Mark, groups of 3 or so similar sister ships. The ‘Taiko’ & the ‘Tampa’ for example, were sister ships. Each ship would return to Port Jackson after a period of about 110 days. WALLENIUS WILHELMSEN

  49. 49. &quot;The Sydney Harbour Control Tower&quot; 2008  oil on canvas 180 x 122cm <ul><li>I was Artist in Residence at the &quot;Hungry Mile&quot; aka &quot;East Darling Harbour Wharves&quot; from 2005 until after the stevedores left & the preparations for &quot;World Youth Week&quot; had started. </li></ul><ul><li>I painted this inside Shed 4, the top floor of which once contain the offices . While the wharf was still operational I would never have been allowed to paint there as it was far too dangerous. Forklifts used to whip in & out of the entrance constantly, & there was a deafening alarm that would go off whenever this happened. I had earmarked this spot as a site for an iconic painting as soon as I arrived in 2005. The doorway frames the Sydney Harbour Tower, the bond stores & the quirky architecture of the heritage Palisade Hotel perched on the golden sandstone escarpment to perfection. </li></ul><ul><li>This area is now called Barangaroo. The once bustling wharf has suddenly become eerily silent; soon the cycle of demolition & construction shall begin. </li></ul>

  59. 59. Coda <ul><li>I seem to have an uncanny instinct for selecting subjects that are about to vanish. Ironically part of the attraction of such places is their poignant impermanence. I sought to paint the landscape forever poised at the moment of transition – at the first bite of the bulldozer – at the point of maximum contrast between past & future. I experienced great frustration at painting to an unknown but inevitable time limit as buildings were demolished as fast as I could paint them. </li></ul><ul><li>As the momentum of development rapidly gathered, I continued to record this area with an increasing sense of purpose.  </li></ul><ul><li>  These works changed from isolated images into an extensive narrative sequence of the abandonment, decay, destruction & reconstruction of a city - a metaphor for deeper changes within Australia. </li></ul><ul><li>The mood has changed forever, & only my works remain as testament to the passing of an era. </li></ul>
