White Bay, Haiku
Artist's Statement: This is a Sydney painting from a different perspective... White Bay and the old Balmain power station is probably the last place to be developed... the power station dominates the skyline ...this is where I used to work in the 80’s. This is the place where Dawn Fraser used to swim, the harbour water warm from the power station outlet. It’s a simple literal painting, the line between gesture, abstraction and reality is very fine... All conveyed with charcoal drawing ....
Medium: Acrylic & charcoal on canvas
Dimensions: 118 x 194 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Expressive, bursts of energy, strength of colour, and wall power are just some of the adjectives or phrases to describe Phil Stallard’s paintings. His style will refresh any interior with exciting incendiary like bursts of colour and tone! - Mark Widdup.
"There is a "total experience" in a Phil Stallard painting, a similar notion that no part of the painting is bland, or subordinate, or to be passed over. Stallard's work is very painterly indeed. His oil-paint is applied with a fluid lushness, a sensuousness, that recalls 1960’s Brett Whiteley." - Peter Pinson, OAM.
