Artist Statement: Boats make great subjects, no matter how large or how small. As a change from the great coal carriers that dominate our harbour, Lake Macquarie is home to thousands of recreational boats, both sail and power. This simple study shows the crew tidying up after a day out racing, furling sails and getting ready, perhaps, for an evening of tall tales at the yacht club.
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 76 x 76 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Gavin Fry has worked in Australian art for more than 50 years, but only recently has gone full circle to the place where he started, as a practicing painter, fresh out of art school in the late 1960's. In a long career he took many directions, seeking out new experiences and forms of expression After teaching at secondary and tertiary levels, Gavin took to museum work as an art curator and museum director. As a direct result of that work he has become one of Australia’s best known and most prolific writers on art and history, with more than 20 books to his credit. A lifetime of looking at, and writing about art has taken him back to where he started, painting and drawing the world around him in a distinctive and highly personal way.
