Liang Luscombe, ‘A tall painter’

Situated alongside the Yarra Flats component of the Heidelberg Artist Trail, Melbourne-based artist and alumna Liang Luscombe (2014) presents a series of outdoor paintings, which speak to the historical narrative that has been built around the looming figures of the Heidelberg School of the 1890s. Collaging and contrasting newspaper cartoons, exhibition invitations and photographs of the Melbourne that these artists inhabited, Luscombe contemplates the lineage and myth-making surrounding painters such as Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts and Frederick McCubbin in relation to conceptions of the figure conducting plein air.
