Juan Davilla by Roger Benjamin

Book Description

Juan Davila is a painter who passionately believes in using art to facilitate social change. Davila was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to Australia in the 1970s to escape the violent totalitarian regime of Pinochet. His work had an immediate impact on the Australian art scene and he has since become one of Australia's most respected and creative artists and is represented in all State and National art museums. His work addresses international issues, especially with reference to Latin American and Australian themes, and he draws on his own experiences of repression and loss suffered during Chile's dark history. Davila's art - beautiful, complex, confronting and provocative - sets to counter indifference in the community and spark intellectual discourse on many issues in the international political landscape - terrorism, refugees, political and social rights and undemocratic governments.

Kandinsky and Klee in Tunisia by Roger Benjamin Kandinsky and Klee in Tunisia, Hardback (September 2015)

Offers an understanding of how the European avant-garde was formed in dialogue with cultural difference. This book looks closely at the cities of Tunis, Sousse, Hammamet, and Kairouan to flesh out a profound confrontation between European high modernism and the wealth of Islamic lifeways and architecture.

Renoir and Algeria by Roger Benjamin Renoir and Algeria, Hardback (February 2003)

This work assembles all of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Algerian paintings as a coherent body of work, situating his early studio Orientalism within the great tradition of French Orientalist painting. There are period photographs, engravings, maps and postcards, together with an essay on Algeria.

Orientalist Aesthetics by Roger Benjamin Orientalist Aesthetics, Hardback (February 2003)

Illustrated with exotic images ranging from Renoir's forgotten Algerian oeuvre to the abstract vision of Matisse's Morocco and beyond, this book provides a history of Orientalist art during the period of high modernism. Roger Benjamin draws on unfamiliar paintings, posters and more.
