Trees on Paper
16th to 28th February 2010
Global Gallery, Paddington, Sydney.
The artist has endured rain, cold, wind and sun over five seasons of 2008/09 to produce this body of work. The ‘Trees on Paper’ exhibition expresses energies created by trees, land and light and their emotional impact. The vibrant colours and the unique style evident in each work are a dynamic interpretation of the landscape with its own harmony and power. The work is completed in a single sitting en plein air. The artist often returns to the same location over a number of weeks or months to study the changed mood, light, weather and seasons. The artist likens his almost obsessive interest in the same subject to Cezanne’s interest in Mont Sant-Victoire which he visited time and time again to work on the same view of the same subject. This body of work is the result of a persistent and self-critical approach over a number of years revealing a unique style and vision. The thirty two works are created using Albert Durer , Faber Castell pencil on archival paper.
