Fred Williams

There're some artists whose works seem to have instant magnetic attractions, pulling me towards them.
He is one such artist.

Today is my second viewing of this great Australian painter at NGV Federation Square.

It's a fascinating retrospective from his early days to the untimely death.

There's a plethora of great paintings here.
Figurative works, gum trees, bush fires, ponds, billabongs, waterfalls, waterscapes, beaches, red earth....

This is a man who were completely in tune with Australian landscape, and had a brilliance of capturing them in the form of paintings.

'Fred Williams - Infinite Horizons' is a great catalogue of this well-organised exhibition.
Reading through this, I admire even more his tenacious focus on his work, his energy and his love for nature.
