The Art of Navy by Ralph Kerle

A commission by the Royal Australian Navy

An exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney - 2 Oct to 30 Oct 2019 Details

Internationally recognised Australian artist Ralph Kerle was commissioned by the Royal Australian Navy in early 2019 to apply his innovative digital photographic technique to capture images of ships of the fleet in the waters of Sydney Harbour. 

Kerle's art practice creates work that is abstract and impressionistic yet anchored in the natural environment. His images are not photo-shopped or artificially created. They are images that nature has created and exist in reality. They are designed as peaceful meditations on the way we engage with the environment in which we live and how we think, see and communicate our sense of “being” in it.

In the Art of Navy exhibition, he asks the question " how might we think differently about the world of the Navy?"
