David Serisier: Serisier House - Art Collector

11 September 2012 | Due out in November, Serisier House documents a collaboration between the colour field painter David Serisier, his dealer James Erskine and architect George Hatzisavas on a residential project at Watsons Bay in Sydney.

Erskine, the director of Liverpool Street Gallery in Sydney, commissioned Serisier to produce a series of site-specific paintings for the Hatzisavas designed house.

Serisier says he was very conscious of the site-specific nature of the commission. “The project was about working out how a suite of paintings could interact with the architecture… they interact with the shifting light: they are not static objects,” he says.

The book includes an extensive photographic essay that documents how the paintings interact with the space, as well as colour plates of the individual paintings.

Serisier House is published by White Buffalo, Liverpool Street Gallery’s newly established publishing arm, in a run of 900. Serisier has also produced a suite of woodblock prints in an edition of 100 to accompany the publication.
