The exhibition showcases the extent of Sidney Nolan’s experiments with the Paintbox through previously unseen artwork from their archives including video and other material. The exhibition also includes artwork by students from Hereford College of Art’s Digital Futures Programme.

Antony Mottershead, the Sidney Nolan Trust’s Curator and Creative Producer commented: “The artwork that Nolan created using the Quantel Paintbox is yet another instance of his eagerness to experiment with new tools and technologies – a further voyage of discovery on the cusp of the digital age. The exhibition opens a window onto his early digital forays and demonstrates how artists and designers pioneered a visual language that we often take for granted.” 

Nolan’s former home, 17th century Rodd Court, displays artwork and materials from the Trust’s archive and collection which further illuminates Nolan’s life and work.
