A highly respected artist, Garry Shead’s style is distinctly Australian. In ‘The Gathering’, he imagines a friendship between a regal figure and outback kangaroo. Like a short story, this work sets up a narrative in clear, engrossing sweeps. What brings this fauna and friend together?
An edition of ‘The Gathering’ - which forms part of the artist’s DH Lawrence series - is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. Shead is represented in all public institutions and has won the Archibald and Dobell prizes.
Frollicking in the serious and profane, his work is at once light-hearted and interrogative. It suits collectors of Australian Modern art, as well as all who rejoice in a good story.
