The Landscapes of Reg Mombassa – Antipodean Scenery: Views from the eyes of a car is a stunning retrospective of one of Australia’s most beloved and celebrated artists. Reg Mombassa’s work has been a part of the fabric of Australia’s pop culture for nearly 40 years with his irreverent take on life down under, but it is his unique landscapes that have earned him a place as one of Australia’s most influential and prolific fine artists. From the early days of his childhood in rural New Zealand, and around his adopted Australian home Reg has been documenting the landscape, oftentimes from cars and buses on the road with his bands ‘Mental as Anything’ and ‘Dog Trumpet’; always with sketchbook in hand. Now over 200 of his iconic landscapes have been brought together for the first time to provide an evocative portrait of our very antipodean landscape, tracing its forever changing geographic and social outlook.
