100 Years
100 Paintings

About the 100 Years, 100 Paintings project.

‘100 Years, 100 Paintings’ reflects on the history of long-serving community organisation, UnitingSA, through the eyes of an artist deeply connected to its cause and its Port Adelaide roots.

As a painter, mental health worker and Port local, Robert Habel weaves together the stories of UnitingSA, from 1919 to 2019 and beyond.

Layering a rich personal accumulation of images, experiences and methods, his vision and insights are always trained on ‘the local’.

Comprising 100 oil paintings, Habel’s artwork is inspired by the changing social and physical environments that embrace both artist and organisation.

The artworks are now on permanent public display at UnitingSA West Lakes, 1 Charles Street, West Lakes.

Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something.

UnitingSA relies on the generosity of donors to help deliver innovative programs and support for people in need across metropolitan and regional South Australia.

“I was in such a dark place for years and my mental health issues meant I couldn’t see anything straight. With the help of my support worker, I started to feel comfortable in my own skin and now I am even working again. I will always remember how I recovered with the help I received through UnitingSA.”
