CALLAGHAN & CALLAGHAN – NEW WORKS
9 July 2016 @ 9:00 am - 25 July 2016 @ 5:00 pm
“Malaysian born Australian artist Stef Callaghan’s paintings are idyllic. They reflect the joy in everyday life, and explore interactions between people in their daily pursuits, there is no attempt at reality in her work. Voluptuous ladies are depicted in bright landscapes suggesting perfect sisterhood. Delighting the eye, they make you smile.
George Callaghan was born in Antrim in 1941. He left school at 15 to work as an apprentice commercial artist, later studying at Belfast College of Art. George worked in advertising agencies from Dublin to London and eventually in Sydney, Australia.
In 1973 he relocated to Tasmania, where he lived for almost 30 years – recognized as one of the state’s leading artists.
He paints in a naïve style – without depth or perspective, chimneys with identically stylised puffs of smoke and trees as green balls on sticks. Drawing, design and colour are finely developed with meticulous painting technique.”
