    Sunrise is an exhibition of large-scale paintings and works on paper that reflects the diversity of image-making in the abstractionist movement in Australian art from the late 1960s to the 1980s. This exhibition includes artists who each made significant contributions to abstractionism. Alun Leach-Jones’ painting Noumenon XLIV. In nature there is neither right nor left ..., 1971, from his well-known Noumenon series is included. Leach-Jones was an artist whose work was shown in The Field exhibition which was held at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1968. By the mid-1980s, abstractionism was confronted by increased interest in conceptualism that led to further change and development in Australian art.
