This will be about my sixth solo exhibition since becoming a member of VAS in about 1975.
This exhibition “A NEW DIRECTION” is in two halves (or themes).
The exhibition is made up of small paintings in either oil or gouache of common everyday objects from around the house or landscapes. I find that very ordinary objects (lemons, onions etc) painted with care and integrity have a great deal of charm.
Very new for me are a series of hand coloured lino prints that I have been working on for several months. After printing the lino by hand (I don’t have a press) each one is hand coloured with watercolour. No two are exactly the same. In fact some could be coloured to match the wallpaper!
A number of subjects are included in the prints
Waratahs - Walter Magilton
Proteas - Walter Magilton
