About the work:
Foothill With Cockies, Original Artwork by Andy Pye.
This piece is part of Magma : Gamma, a solo exhibition by Andy Pye.
Magma : Gamma showcases Pye’s idiosyncratic approach to landscape painting. Brushstrokes are carefully placed, and yet somehow effortlessly capture the movement and transience of the light on a moss-covered rock or peeling bark of a eucalyptus trunk.
Magma : Gamma, Pye’s first solo exhibition at Modern Times, captures the rugged bushland and rock forms of the southern Grampians in South West Victoria. Drawing inspiration from myths and layered histories of the area, Pye is drawn to the volcanic nature of the landscape, bodies of water, and the connections between rock, light and magnetism.
About the Artist:
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. Currently based in regional Northern Victoria, Pye has exhibited extensively both locally and interstate. His works are held in private and corporate collections in Australia, the USA, Canada, France and the United Kingdom.
