Rod Bathgate

An Understatement of Intention
03 December - 20 December 2010

The paintings represented in this show are at first sight an eclectic group comprising landscape to portrait. I have brought different styles in a few works as well. The outcome, I hope though, is a reasonably unified reflection of life on the central and mid coast of NSW bringing; different elements and various treatments to familiar subjects. The concentration on atmospheric, impressionist works suggest a more intimate approach (As in ‘Lower Fort Street, Sydney an impression’)- where the more realist seascape paintings give a more matter of fact rendering to the coastline.

I know that the variety of works give an idea of the versatility of my abilities and a genuine choice to the viewer according to their tastes. In other words this exhibition is a calling card to those who may wish to know a different side to my usual artwork.

Apart from those on display at the exhibition, the website offers additional artworks (yet to be mounted or framed) which bring portraiture, caricature (cartoon) and graphic elements to those who crave something a little different.
