The Henry Jones is proud to present new acrylic landscape paintings by Angus Douglas.
Angus is a master of capturing the spectacular colours and topography of our beautiful island state. In this series Angus takes us high above the canopies of the rugged South West coast of Tasmania, in the cockpit of a light aircraft, providing us with a birds eye view of the some of the most isolated and stunning areas in Tassie.
Please join us on opening night for drinks with the artist on Wednesday, 13th February 2019,
5:30 – 7:30 pm
Location: The Packing Room, IXL Atrium (25 Hunter Street, Hobart).
Artist Statement and Biography:
“Traversing on foot through the remote South West Tasmanian wilderness is no stranger to me, but seeing this landscape from a light aircraft cockpit is a whole different vantage point. I want to make the foreground perspective literally fall away beneath your feet. I can create the abstraction of canopy and understorey layers, jostling for light and explore different dimensions of depth.
I have been painting professionally for ten years. Landscape remains a key focus for me, whether it’s the big horizon or an intimate interior.”
