BORN 1952

STUDIES

Trinity Grammar School Melbourne where he excelled at print making. He then travelled throughout Australia, Asia and Europe and, although largely self taught, completed several painting courses on returning to Australia.

Background

As a landscape painter Westle says “My aim as a landscape painter is to express what being in the bush means to me. My paintings speak of the precious moments when we take time out to communicate with nature. The time we sit on the headlands and dream about the future and reflect on the past, the times we walk along the lonely track and winder about the complexity of it all. The times we share friendship and just marvel at the beauty of it all. It’s a wonderful world we live in, I strive for my paintings to reflect some of that wonder.”

Themes

Westle’s enthusiasm for the Australian landscape and seascape is evident in the colour, freedom of application and raw energy emanating from his paintings, through which he has evolved a distinctive language for landscape.
