17 July 2015 – Lauraine Diggins Fine Art
Michael McWilliams: An Aussie Wally showing at LDFA
Lauraine Diggins Fine Art is pleased to present new paintings by Tasmanian artist Michael McWilliams. The exhibition, An Aussie Wally, showing until 29 August 2015, features the pademelon wallaby (now extinct on the mainland) in every painting. Sometimes the wallaby is in its natural setting, sometimes a bit more unusual and sometimes it is a real Where's Wally hunt to find. The exhibition highlights the artist's concerns about the myriad of issues surrounding European colonisation. In Michael's paintings, contemporary attitudes toward both native and introduced animals are registered, explored and humoursly played out. As Rod James describes in his catalogue essay, "The refined brushwork, subtle colours and dramatic treatment of light resemble the work of the great John Glover. Just as Glover's style evolved over time so has that of McWilliams. His great capacity for storytelling and disarming sense of humour are matched by an aesthetic sensibility that continues to grow."
Please contact the Gallery for a colour illustated catalogue and preview the exhibition on our website www.diggins.com.au

28 April 2015 – Lauraine Diggins Fine Art
Andrew Sayers: Nature Through the Glass of Time
Lauraine Diggins Fine Art is pleased to present ANDREW SAYERS: Nature Through the Glass of Time, an exhibition featuring a&nbsp;<span style="color: #505050; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px; text-align: justify;">large selection of works, ranging from the late&nbsp;1980s to today, which examines the artist's engagement with both time and nature. &nbsp;Many of the works reveal his interest in geology. &nbsp;The still life paintings of rocks embody the character of a place, so they act as a kind of portrait and contain landscapes within. &nbsp;The gouaches of seascapes with their focus on headlands, beaches and skies were mostly painted en plain air, whilst his recent large oil paintings have an anchor in traditional landscape. Andrew Sayers is perhaps best known as the inaugural Director of the National Portrait Gallery and Director of the National Museum of Australia, Canberra.</span>
