As I've noted before, Bird Of Prey, a 100cm x 150cm, high gloss enamel on timber board painting inspired by a 2001 artist's expedition to Lake Eyre, in the arid heart of central Australia, is to be auctioned by Menzies Art Brands in Melbourne on Thursday, 23rd September at 6.30pm. If you can't afford the pre-sale estimate of $A9,000 to $A12,000, the painting can be viewed in at Menzies' gallery at 1 Darling Street, South Yarra, from this Thursday, 16th September to Wednesday, 22nd September, 11am to 6pm daily. A little more affordable are a set of color photographs, hand-printed from 35mm negatives, that were the initial reference sources for several of my well-known Lake Eyre-inspired works from 2002. Each has an image size of 13.5cm x 20.5cm positioned on larger glossy, resin-coated paper, and is signed, dated, and matted individually with white, archival-quality, eight-ply rag. The set of five is priced at $2,500 but a single photograph is $550. Payment by electronic bank transfer or Paypal is accepted. For further information – or to order – please email my studio. Incidentally, excerpts from a documentary film, The View from Here, about the privately sponsored, expedition – on which I was the only artist under 30, as well as the only female, among ten artists that included five of Australia's most eminent living painters – John Olsen, Tim Storrier, David Larwill, Jeff Makin and Robert Jacks – can be found on YouTube.
