KEVIN CONNOR EXHIBITION REVIEWED BY W. H. CHONG FOR ‘DAILY REVIEW’

June 27, 2019

KEVIN CONNOR VISUAL ARTS REVIEW (NICHOLAS THOMPSON GALLERY, MELBOURNE) By W H Chong June 25, 2019 This show of paintings and drawings has the fervour of an artist in their youthful prime, but Connor is 87 this year. He is one of the grandest old painters in Sydney with many works in the Art gallery of NSW. Reproductions of his earlier work in the books at the gallery, consistent in feeling and expression, prove these late works as even looser, painted with more velocity. There is nothing to understand, you look and “get” it, like a knack. It’s all in…

April 16, 2019

Dan Kyle By Owen Craven Soon after graduating from the National Art School, Dan Kyle set up home deep within the Australian bush at the foot of the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. His paintings are translations of what he sees – the beauty, the unique forms, the colours – but also his way of reducing the density of the bush to a more approachable landscape for him to keep exploring. Back in Issue 32, 2015, Artist Profile chatted to Dan about the formal and conceptual nuances of his landscapes. You are a young painter, painting landscapes, it’s a bit…

April 10, 2019

DESTINATION / IN RESIDENCE Escape to the bush with Dan Kyle at the Nicholas Thompson Gallery WORDS Olivia Repaci     There is something so captivating about the Australian bush. Whether it’s the contrast of the white gum bark against vast shrubbery, or the intricate weaving of branches and leaves that create a labyrinth of natural universes, we’re transfixed. And evidently we’re not alone, the landscape also has a special hold over Sydney artist Dan Kyle. Graduating from the National Art School in 2010 and setting up his studio on the outskirts of Sydney’s west, Kyle creates art that captures the softer side of…

Dan Kyle: Backcountry 28 March 2019 | Art Almanac Dan Kyle continues his investigations into the elevated Australian landscape of the Blue Mountains and Great Dividing Ranges in ‘Backcountry’. Informed by the changing climate, Kyle depicts the landscape in the summer heat, hot dry days in the bush, and the stark midday light, as well as the more subdued humidity and mist after storms, evening shadows and warm light in the afternoon. Colour drives Kyle’s compositions. He explains that ‘during this season the angophoras shed their bark… revealing orange peachy pinky skin.’ Nicholas Thompson Gallery 10 to 28 April, 2019…

REW HANKS AWARDED ‘2019 BURNIE PRINT PRIZE’

March 29, 2019

Rew Hanks’ linocut ‘Gone fishing east of Faskrudsfjordur’ has been awarded the 2019 Burnie Print Prize . Hanks told Tasmania’s ‘The Advocate’ – ‘”It’s a response to the environment of Iceland… It’s the biggest piece I’ve ever done. It’s just over two metres and if you look closely, there’s a man fishing and a team of people fishing.” Judge Tess Edwards, Director of the Baldessin Press commented “It’s almost metaphysical and transcendent in its subject matter and the execution in technique is masterly,” .
