Artist Statement: This work focuses on a simple composition working within the green and yellow colour range. The idea usually starts in the vegetable section of the supermarket when I come across some fruit or vegetable that catches my eye whilst shopping. I then try to create a composition by adding drapery and objects. Once again I’m interested in the textures of the various objects often watching the fruit shrivel and decay whilst working intensely to complete the work before they become unrecognisable. Every work has its challenges.
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 31 x 41 cms
CHG Directors Statement: It's hard to make a past comparison with any Australian artist who has the diversification, depth of art training, skills and breadth of art interest Bruce Rowland possesses. Furthermore, he has studied, taught, refined and developed a professionalism across so many mediums. Arguably there hasn't been an artist since Norman Lindsay who has the scope of art skill across so many media as Bruce Rowland. Apart from that, he is prepared to convey and share his artistic knowledge with anyone who shares an enthusiasm with art and art history. His art was acknowledged with a major survey exhibition of his artworks at the Newcastle Region Art Gallery in 2007.
