David Fairbairn: Lineage
July 1, 2011 — August 20, 2011Free
David Fairbairn selected portraits 1998 – 2010. A Campbelltown Arts Centre travelling exhibition, curated by Renee Porter. Linage is an exhibition that spans the last twelve years of David Fairbairn’s artistic practice. The artist works on prints, drawings and paintings in a range of sizes concurrently. Lineage includes works that are larger than life size portraits to the more intimate etchings and drawings. This exhibition presents a comprehensive body of work and clearly illustrates Fairbairn’s mastery of the use of line, the power and immediacy of its mark and his dedicated approach to producing mulit-media work that reveals he is one of Australia’s leading contemporary draughtsmen.
