The painting ‘The Judgement’ depicts what I believed to be true. The tracker outside the window of the courtroom is frustrated that the law did not want his evidence and I believed there was a conspiracy to cover up this evidence. The Judge I painted blindfold as he was blinded to the real facts. The jury are shown with masks and dark glasses because they did not see or were not told the true details and were kept in the dark.

Neville is Art Master at Newington College in Sydney.
Neville did his PhD thesis on the Chamberlain case, and I show a few of those paintings on this site. This painting is highly symbolic, including depictions of Ayers Rock, blood cells, trees to represent Lindy’s children. With Lindy’s hair, he depicts her as now being part of the Rock.

He told us that title Graffiti was inspired by the fact that as you enter Sydney by train, you pass by the neglected back walls of buildings covered with graffitti, commenting on all aspects of society. Lindy’s story has now joined the fabric and lore of Australian society. He has painted her image, as she looked during her jail time.
