Walters: Art of Realism & Abstraction
30cm x 25cm. 176 pages, colour illustrations. Black cloth, grey lettering, illustrated jacket.
“Wes Walters has painted more than 200 portraits of notable Australians e.g. Arthur Boyd, Kerry Stokes, Kenneth Myer and Dame Elizabeth Murdoch. His abstract paintings, on the other hand, are inspired by the Australian landscape. These highly gestural abstracts have seldom been exhibited while much of his highly successful graphic design work executed in the 1960s and 70s will be immediately recognisable to those who once drove early Holden cars and ate Chiko rolls. David Thomas explores the background of this Ballarat-born artist and traces Walterss career up to the retrospective exhibition to be launched concurrently with this book, in June 2009.” (publisher’s blurb)
