Acrylic on canvas 51 x 61cm Rainbow Chard is the prettiest plant in the vegetable garden with its vivid waxy yellows, pinks and reds (with the added bonus of being delicious). Tim has celebrated its beauty in this intimate portrait of the fertile ground and it's beautiful crop.
Tim Price is an exuberant painter who depicts all kinds of Tasmanian subjects in a wide variety of styles. A wonderful colourist, he enjoys painting landscape en plein air with a painterly and expressive brushstroke using saturated colour. These works express immediacy and transfer the visceral sense of being in the open air while avoiding conventional pictoral depth. His paintings have the light and colour of Vlaminck and Sisley but with added Hockneyesque colour.
