Tony Woods was one of Australia’s most exciting young artists in the late 1960s. Originally from Tasmania, he enthralled Melbourne audiences with a series of dazzling exhibitions before travelling to New York on a Harkness Scholarship. There, in the midst of increasing success, Woods met with a major personal artistic tragedy which forestalled his career. Returning to Australia, he was an early participant in Sydney’s renowned Yellow House with close friend Brett Whiteley before turning his back on the seductively heady lifestyle to live in Melbourne.
