About the work:
Apollo Bay Rainforest, Original Painting by Andy Pye.
Working amongst the life, sound, movement and ‘solitary’ landscape of the Australian bush, painter Andy Pye chooses a scene of the Australian condition and captures it at face value.
‘I approach the Australian Bush at face value, and from inside it. There’s no hidden meaning to my work. It is the Australian Bush,’ says Pye.
About the Artist:
Andy Pye works out of his bush studio near Eldorado in northern Victoria, where he paints en plein air, capturing the native bushland. Pye takes inspiration from Russian painter and sculptor Danila Vassilieff (1897-1958) who emigrated to Australia in the early 1920s and whose work Pye credits with informing his practice, as well as the way he approached life as an artist. Pye has exhibited widely in a number of Victorian galleries including Boom Gallery, Geelong, Wangaratta Art Gallery and RMIT Gallery, Melbourne.
