Througout the 80s and 90s when much of Victoria was in drought – renowned artist Allan Wolf-Tasker painted the landscape. With a practised brush he created vivid images of country Australia, farmland, drybeds of creeks, rivers and bush.
Now with a studio nestled above the very quiet Baldy’s Beach, Allan takes inspiration from the ever changing majectic coastline of the Great Ocean Road. Although recent in their production, the nature of the paintings is not entirely new; an evolution of the landscape style that was depicted almost 20 years ago with an entirely new perspective.
‘The coastline is invigorating, sometimes threatening and you’re forced to adopt a “Seagullist” view of the ancient formations. This body of work continues my obessession with the aerial perspective a sort of “out of body” view of the world.’ Allan Wolf-Tasker
Allan studied sculpture and printmaking at R.M.I.T graduating in 1966. He has exhibited in group and solo shows in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and New York.
