Bernard Ollis "The Artists Garden Part 2" @ HARVEY GALLERIES MOSMAN, 20 March - 6 April 2021
“Over many years I have visited numerous artist’s gardens and studios throughout the world including Australia. I was particularly keen to look at artists that had been inspired by nature in their own work, which therefore made their garden so relevant for them. This formed the catalyst for many art works over many years. As an artist and teacher, I have acted as a tour guide to students with visits to the following studios and gardens. I have also spent days sitting and drawing in those locations alone, taking inspiration from the varied views that the artist themselves often encountered, both past and present.
I not only trod the same path as the artist did in the past, but also became influenced by how they may have reacted to it. This was particularly true of the French masters. These works are a celebration of those important visual artists and how they have celebrated nature through their own work.”
