10 Jan Antony Lister – Adventure Painter
Another late post but towards the end of 2014 saw the publication of Antony Lister – Adventure Painter! It is a terrific book celebrating the work of my favourite antipodean painter, friend and collaborator Mr Lister.
Produced by the inimitable Roger Gastman this the most extensive monograph of the artist to date full of sketches and behind the scenes imagery. Having previously championed Lister’s work and worked with him on a number of limited edition prints with Pictures on Walls I was pleased to be asked to be one of co-authors of the book.
The book is divided into outside street work and gallery work and my text was for the “gallery” section. You’ll have to track down a copy of the book to read my text, but its well worth seeking out the book to discover and to appreciate the painterly skills and force of nature that is Mr Lister!
