Tim Storrier’s powerful lithographs have literally set the art world on fire, depicting the unyielding vastness and limitless horizons of the Australian landscape with stars, burning logs, ropes, and other three-dimensional constructions.
At 19, Storrier became the youngest artist to win the Sulman Prize, and in 2012 he won the seminal Archibald Prize for his faceless self-portrait “The histrionic wayfarer (after Bosch)”. Storrier’s work hangs in the Louvre Museum in Paris, the National and Tate galleries in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York, and in Australian state and regional galleries. Now Storrier is showing at the Peninsula’s exciting new art gallery, Jon Cecil Fine Art.
Jon Cecil’s gallery recently moved from Melbourne and Sydney to the former Poffs Restaurant site in Red Hill. Alongside Storrier you can also see works by Brett Whiteley, Charles Blackman, John Olsen, Lloyd Rees, Bruno Leti, Max Miller, Alexander Stitt, John Firth-Smith (Australia) as well as such legendary international artists as David Hockney, Joe Tilson, Richard Hamilton and Allen Jones (UK), Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist (US), and Joichi Hoshi, Toko Shinoda, Mitsuhiro Unno, Clifton Karhu and Yoshitoshi Mori (Japan).
The Storrier exhibition runs from October 8-November 5 and can also be viewed online at artnet.net.au
