Gary MILES, "Sentinel Outlook" (no.18, oil on linen, 110 x 112 cm, $7,500)
The esteemed Australian painter Gary Miles joined Phil Henshall and Graeme Myrteza on the tour of Arkaroola. His paintings demonstrate yet another artistic approach and unique interpretation of the South Australian outback wilderness. Miles’s paintings, such as “Sentinel Outlook”, bear an unmistakeable influence of such giants of Australian landscape as John Olsen and Fred Williams. Vivid patches of greens and ochres convey the dominant colour palette of the local landscape. The rapid brushwork and the sinuous lines imbue the painting with movement and energy and add to the sensation of an upward spiralling surge.
The exhibition is current until November 12.
