Paddy Bedford, whose retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art is covered by Emily Dunn in The Sydney Morning Herald and also covered by Rosalie Higson in The Australian, has the most amazing face. Really. If you don't believe me, click on the links! He must have been even handsomer when young.

I really only wanted to show you his wonderful face, but his artworks are extremely compelling, too. The one shown below evokes a style that is an amalgam of those of Piet Mondrian and Cy Twombly. Lovely stuff.

Paddy Bedford's recent work is sometimes done in primary colours

He looks like one of those great Delta bluesmen--Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters.

I especially like the close-up the Herald ran. He should be in the movies!
