Since beginning his professional art life in 1974 Grahame Sydney has worked as a painter, printmaker, photographer and writer and has become celebrated as the definitive painter of Central Otago. He has produced an enormously varied body of work: the luminous skies of Central Otago, his magnificent portraits, figure studies, still lifes, drawings and etchings.
Sydney is a clever magician who plies his craft with great skill and subtlety, making paintings that are seemingly simple, but their plain reality tenders deeper emotions than simple recognition. You don’t just see the land here, you feel it… these hills, these skies give us a voice that is unique, a voice that is evoked by the art of Grahame Sydney. It is the voice of us all. Keith Stewart, Art Critic.
