    Art & Woolloomooloo Unofficial Murals
    Murals are a feature in the Loo. Matron Olive O’Neill, age 86 probably put up the first banner: Hands off! THIS COULD BE YOUR HOUSE! Nell Leonard said: We got these big pieces of board and wrote on it “homes for people not office blocks for foreign investors” and put them on the houses at night. (Fitzgerald, pers. com., in Sydney 1842-1992.) Brenda Humble and her two children painted “We love the loo” while her friend Susan Tooth painted “Robert Askin loves Laura Norda”. The Rainbow Serpent appeared at 19 Harmer St (1973-4). The vernacular tradition continues with Wall Art at Sydney Place, at Dowling St Container Garden and Bourke Street Park. 2000; Susan Tooth interviewed by Janet Morice, 13 January 2000. Susan Tooth moved to Paddington in the early 1960's and was a founding member of the Paddington Society. She completed an art degree at East Sydney Technical College and won the Sulman Prize in 1960.

    Herbert Badham : s in this painting, he often engaged his friends as models in his subject paintings. In Travellers 1933, for example, Badham's sister Molly is the central figure with his brother Morris on the right. In the major painting, Temptation of St Anthony exhibited in the 1957 Blake Prize for Religious Art, foreground figures include Dorothy Thornhill, wife of Douglas Dundas sometime head of the National Art School, Peter Dodds a fellow teacher at the East Sydney Tech, Muriel Medworth and Susan Tooth, as well as his wife and, Alfred Hitchcock like, himself. A highly complex painting both compositionally and intellectually, Temptation of St Anthony makes extensive and creative use of perspective. Badham had a special interest in perspective having begun a thesis on its theory and practice. Al Fresco provides an early example of its inventive use, the brick wall and white tablecloth leading the eye into the picture's depth while table objects and figures tend to emphasise the picture's plane and achieve a mural-like effect. By such clever means Badham balances the informal - the alfresco or informal lunch - with a slightly more formal presentation in doors.

    For his art, Badham drew on the world around him, usually relaxed in mood and activity. There are paintings of fairgrounds, town bands, the theatre, the cinema, and of pubs - London and Sydney - taken high in viewpoint or sociably there among the drinkers. An influential teacher and writer, Badham's role on the stage of Australian art is similar to that of Edward Hopper in the U.S.A, Stanley Spencer in the U.K., and those Germans of the Neue Sachlichkeit, his realism yet to be fully appreciated in his own country.
