Romance of the Swag celebrates the creative life of iconic Australian artist Linda Jackson. An itinerant traveller, Jackson’s work has always drawn inspiration from place; from the black opals of Lightning Ridge, to the billabongs and boabs of the Kimberley Coast, to the tropical flora and fauna of Far North Queensland, and the waratahs of the Blue Mountains region. Romance of the Swag explores four decades of the artist’s practice, charting her travels through painting, fabric, and fashion, all steeped in the symbolism, colours, and textures of the Australian landscape.
