Tony (John Anthony) TUCKSON

Tony Tuckson trained in London and at East Sydney Technical School. He did not show his work commercially because for many years, as a Deputy Director of the Art Galley of New South Wales, he was uncomfortable about promoting his own work. It was only after his death in 1973 that the depth and quality of his art was fully recognized. Interested in the underlying spirit in Aboriginal and Melanesian imagery, Tuckson turned to pure abstract work in the late 1950s.
