Bruce Goold is an artist who seamlessly combines his diverse skills and interests to present the viewer with a completely singular and distinctive aesthetic that is instantly recognisable as his own.
The film takes us from the Bohemian days in the infamous YELLOW HOUSE to grand hotel renovations on Lord Howe Island, to the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House, to Sydney Lady Mayor’s own collection in her town hall office.
Under The Lino incorporates Bruce at work, terrific archival film and photos of some exotic times and people – with wonderful conversations that will help weave a path through his dynamic and colourful career in the 60, 70′ 80’s 90’ 00’s and still going today – 50 years of Australian art.
Bruce’ story is told by the people who have acquired his pieces over the span of his creativity – fabrics, sculptures, lino-prints, paintings and interior designs, works that are pride of place in homes around Australia, and most recently, the world.
Some of the contributors to the colourful discussions are: Dare Jennings, Rachel Ward & Bryan Brown, Hayley Baillie, David Elfick, Ian Kiernan, Cressida Campbell, George Gittoes, Greg Weight, Jeremy Thomas, Nancy Goold and Wendy Whiteley.
