‘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.
