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.
