Geoff Dyer is among Tasmania’s most beloved landscape artists. His evocative compositions describe the state’s undulating land from mountain peaks to gullies and beyond.
In this work, we arrive at ‘King River’. In watercolour and gouache, Dyer evokes the feel of the river - the water is silky, the mountains misty and the trees cutting, thin with swelling foliage. This work transcends a typical landscape. It is somehow intimate and grand, a celebration of nature in all its intricacies, permanence and flux.
In 2003, Dyer won the Archibald for his portrait of Richard Flanagan. He has been a finalist in the Glover, Sulman and Wynne prizes and is represented in national, state and corporate collections across Australia and abroad. For custodians of landscape and contemporary art, as well as those who care for the environment, ‘King River’ is a lifeforce. Let it enliven your collection.
