Eolo Paul Bottaro is recognised for his vivid, expressive and elegant works that deliver a curious insight into the artist' s upbringing in Sicily and his migration to Australia. Bottaro’s sensitive study, ‘Naomi’, is inspired by the eponymous novel by Japanese author Jonichiro Tanizaki. It narrates the infatuation of the main character, Joji, with a beautiful girl, Naomi, whom he attempts to bring up as a Westernized woman. Written in 1924, the novel reflects the changing gendered roles as well as the clash between the traditional Japanese rural society and an increasingly Westernised urban population.
This delicate sepia-toned etching bears witness to Bottaro’s abilities as a printmaker, for which he has received wide recognition, including the 2015 Rick Amor Print Award.
