Home Port

Art Almanac - - Art In Aus­tralia -

Artist, writer and pub­lisher, Gavin Fry car­ries a 50-year pro­fes­sional ca­reer in cu­ra­to­rial man­age­ment in mu­se­ums, gal­leries and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions – an un­der­tak­ing that urged him to put his paint­ing on hold for four decades. Once re­tired, Fry de­cided it was time to pick up where he left off in 1974, and handto-brush he re-ig­nited his cre­ative out­put.

Through text and il­lus­tra­tion ‘Home Port’ re­veals what in­spires Fry’s prac­tice and his con­nec­tion with the places and sub­jects that he paints. From in­dus­trial hori­zons to ships in moon­lit har­bours and built New­cas­tle land­scapes the artist con­veys a colour­ful vi­sion of his sur­round­ings. The se­ries of works in­clude those, which fea­ture a di­men­sional striped de­sign and oth­ers pre­sented in a more sim­pli­fied style.
