Doug Hall opens Andrew Sayers’ exhibition at LDFA

We were delighted that Andrew’s friend and colleague Doug Hall was able to open the exhibition Andrew Sayers: Defining the Artist, featuring a series of over 40 gouaches of both intimate and sweeping views of the coast, the desert, gardens, bridges, rocks, seas and skies. Doug Hall AM, former Director at the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art and former Australian Commissioner of the Venice Biennale, spoke engagingly of the impulses which define an artist and the tradition of artists as curators and directors in our public institutions. His eloquent words about Andrew’s gouaches gave us all a greater appreciation of his ability as an artist to portray the Australian landscape with a real honesty, with “poise, quiet monumentalism and clarity.”
