“To me, the landscapes are always seeking a balance between order and chaos. I have often said that there is no hidden meaning to my work, that it is the Australian Bush. I stand by this, as I seek to continue the work of the pioneer Australian Modernists, paying homage to their motif and legacy. As my pictures move out of dense bushland and to the coast, new approaches in brushstroke and line making are explored.
The Great Ocean Road is a body of work that celebrates the sand, rock, grasses, seaweed, driftwood, sky and big blue.”
A former Geelong local, Andrew Pye now resides in Wangaratta with his wife and children, painting and sculpting daily. This is his third solo exhibition at Boom.
The Great Ocean Road runs until November 3. To see a full listing click here.
