South Coast Leisure Times : Winter 2015
Fine Art Gallery Artist John Vander of Stanwell Park ArtistJohnVanderFAIHA Spectacular Scenery The Stanwell Park region itself is one that translates well into artistic expression. Dominated by the Illawarra Escarpment on one side and a sweep of coastline on the other, Stanwell Park is one of the coast’s most beautiful locations. Stanwell Park is situated on the main coast road, Lawrence Hargrave Drive, and visitors can enjoy magnificent views of the coast from many vantage points, especially from Bald Hill, site of many of Lawrence Hargrave’s box kite experiments and the new spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge. When John Vander paints a town he paints it as a portrait painter would paint his subject. Every building is accurate. He sketches every building in the street before he starts his final work. He Says, “When I look down from the top of a hill on a village I know every house in the town.” “Sometimes I remove the bitumen to take a little liberty with the time of day, the light, or the season, but the structure of my scenes is always true to life.” www.johnvander.com.au Possibly one of the most popular artists in NSW today, his work has been reproduced extensively in prints for many years and has attracted a large following amongst art collectors. During the last 35 years John has become a household name throughout Australia. Do not miss the opportunity to view and purchase one of his original paintings. For the past 35 years countless visitors to his gallery ~ Articles Fine Art Gallery ~ have had the great experience of meeting the artist himself.
