FREO MASTER GEORGE HAYNES SHOWS AT LINTON&KAY

Posted in art, fremantle, western australia by freoview on August 17, 2016

 

Artist George Haynes has been a well-known and highly-respected artist in Fremantle for as long as I can remember, and although he now lives in Spearwood we still call him a Freo artist.

Haynes has not exhibited in a commercial gallery for more than ten years, so his show at the Linton&Kay Galleries at 137 St George’s Terrace in Perth will no doubt attract many art lovers, and hopefully a lot of art buyers.

The show is on from August 22 to September 23, but if you are keen you can view the show on the gallery’s website and buy a work before the show is sold out.

There are abstracts and landscapes, so make sure to check it out!

“I was tempted to call this exhibition ‘Pictures of Paintings’; such a simple title. Because what I find I am doing is painting a picture of a painting seen, as it were, on a wall, and illuminated by an invented light, be it a beam, ray, or shaft, or glow. Some window-scapes, some abstract paintings, some landscape paintings. But as the last painting in the show is dependent on the first, I will call it Two Years of Painting and leave it at that. I can only hope you enjoy the work as I enjoyed painting it.” George Haynes.
