Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue
Early evening. Autumn 1954.
In a house beside the Nepean River a young woman is crying. Iris is chopping onions while Leo cooks the wild mushrooms he picked that morning. Iris is growing up at the foot of the Blue Mountains. Leo is making a new life for himself after fleeing war-ravaged Europe. Both are busy mixing stories, politics and drinks for a raucous party of modernist mischief.
Inspired by the history of Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest, Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue peers through the eyes of ‘the help,’ to offer a fresh take on Emu Plains in the 1950s.
