Over the last two decades, Geelong-born artist Rone has built an exceptional reputation for large-scale wall paintings and immersive installations that explore concepts of beauty and decay. Rone’s site-specific installation transformed a room within Geelong Gallery in response to the architecture and history of the building, and the Gallery’s collection.

The first comprehensive survey of Rone’s career to date was presented, charting the artist’s practice from early stencil works and street art, to photographs documenting major installations that have transformed abandoned spaces.

Set dressing by interior stylist Carly Spooner. Soundtrack composed by Nick Batterham.
