Nicholas Harding | Art Collector

Nicholas Harding has been featured in Art Collector’s Under 5K, an annual presentation of works by established artists that are available for less than $5,000. Included in the mix are Nicholas Harding’s watercolour works completed during a residency in Paris and etchings produced for his recent exhibition at Olsen Irwin Drawing Godot.

Olsen Irwin director Rex Irwin talks of Hardings etchings of the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Waiting for Godot as, ‘Far more exciting than a photo, they capture the immediacy of the drama and sit comfortably in the pantheon of great artists such as Degas, Lautrec and Hockney who worked from life studying performers both on and off stage.’

Peter Booth | Art Collector

Peter Booth‘s drawings have been included in Art Collector’s annual special of artworks available for $5,000 and less. The works are great entry level pieces for anybody wanting to start a collection, or for anyone wanting to add an established artist to their stable. Their strength is drawn from the haunting imagery of the anonymous figures and apocalyptic landscape.

“There is a quality of isolation – not loneliness – in his drawings and a dignity about the figures. Irwin suggests ‘they represent Everyman in the same way Henry Moore’s monolithic women represented Everywoman.'” – Amanda Woodard

Peter Booth’s available drawings as well as oil paintings can be viewed on the Olsen Irwin website.
