Elwyn Lynn "Portraits of stark wastelands" The Australian, 3-4 Nov 1984, review of the Oxley exhibition: “... a stunning series of paintings, some in molten red and sulphurous yellow and others in Stygian blackness .... The light is harsh. It wounds. Despite the bent streams of smoke from the lone factories the scenes are as airless as those urban squares painted by Giorgio de Chirico, who has so long cast his shadows across Australian painting."
