Neil Frazer’s latest paintings are the result of boat expeditions around the dramatic coastlines of New South Wales as he continues to traverse the terrain between abstraction and figuration. The grandeur and scale of his subjects evinces both physical and emotional responses to the landscape.

Frazer’s seductive paintings are constructed using layers of paint that encrust the surface of the canvas. From a distance the commanding cliff formations and shadowy outcrops loom tall above the swirling ocean spray. Yet on closer examination these dissolve into richly textured, abstract passages of paint, juxtaposed against crisp white areas alluding to the searing mid-afternoon light.
