Boy with Banksias
Medium: Etching on Paper
Dimensions: 37 x 50 cms
Director's Statement: This artwork was inspired from Donald Friend's New Guinea period, showing the native hunter stalking the 'Bird of Paradise' pray. It requires a second look this artwork, to discover the number of birds within the composition which is a sophisticated one- in colour, design and execution.
It incorporates a larger paper sheet and I believe is quite a rare composition. Friend is well know for his painting from Bali and his still life from the later period of his life.
This is a collectors artwork not necessarily appealing to everyone. Donald's artwork is extensively held in State Galleries with several survey exhibitions. His art holding via the Art Gallery of NSW is extensive, with paintings, his art on doors and chests etc.
