Tim Storrier: Moments
Edmund Capon, Ken McGregor, William Wright and Jenny Zimmer
332 pages hardcover colour
Tim Storrier, among Australia's most highly regarded and best-selling painters, remains enigmatic. His paintings, which combine the traditional genres of landscape and still-life, executed at a masterly level, are at once beautiful and frightening. Edmund Capon, Director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, has observed that Tim Storriers visions and sensibilities are acute responses to his place, to the flat landscape of Australia in which the horizon is low and the sky is vast. But Storrier's treatment of the landscape is quite unique often animated by a blazing fire-line or used as a stage-set for capturing memories and intimations of human mortality.
