David Voigt is one of Australia’s pre-eminent artists, with two Blake Prize wins and a Wynne Prize for landscape to his credit. The Gallery is proud to have presented numerous bodies of work from this exciting visual artist whose attitude too, and appreciation of, his country’s natural landscape heritage has been a lifelong passion.
David has been involved in 14 exhibitions, both solo and groups, between 2006 and 2018, displaying his constantly evolving approach. The exhibitions demonstrated his continued quest to capture the beautiful and at times dramatic aspects of this country’s natural land, aerial and seascapes.
Unfortunately, David’s love of beach fishing led to an accident. While attempting to escape an incoming wave and crumbling sandbank he was injured which stopped him from painting for sometime. David was almost forced to stop painting altogether, until he finally found a tolerable painting stance on the veranda of his bushland home to keep on with the road to recovery.
His wife, Pia, says this exhibition gave him the impetus to continue painting, and has sparked yet another refinement to his approach to landscapes.
“Across the world many aspects of nature are angry. My view is that in a contest, even if we don’t like the outcome, nature always wins”.
