Living the Land at Chrissie Cotter Gallery

Abstract Australian landscapes will feature at Inner West Council’s Chrissie Cotter Gallery exhibition, Living the Land.

Artist Tony Williams has been an active member of the Lennox Street Studios community in Newtown, Sydney for the past seven years. He brings a long experience of art work to his practice.

He was a potter for more than 24 years, producing fine white stoneware objects and vessels painted in vibrant glazes, and took up painting eight years ago.

Tony works in acrylics for their “immediacy and colours”.

Inspired by the Australian landscape, and especially the panorama of the vast inland viewed from above, Tony works with colour and abstraction to “suggest”, rather than “represent”.

“I aim to convey a love of the landscape presented in an abstract form that evokes the spirit, the strength and the unique qualities of this vast land,” he said.

“I like to think that each work invites the viewer to wander across and through the landscape and to extract their own meaning - sometimes restful, sometimes energised - from the colours, the markings, the repetitive but unique symbols that evoke the changeless but ever changing panorama of the Australian land,” Tony said.

Tony’s work is represented in private collections in Australia, Canada and the UK.

Living the Land is at Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Pidcock Street Camperdown, from Wednesday 16 November – Sunday 27 November.

Opening Wednesday 16 November, 6pm – 8pm.
