The two John Brack pieces I did in 2009 sold yesterday, I'm going to do a bit of a post on John Brack and his show from 2009. His art work has been a great influence on me, and seeing the body of work at the NGV last year led to the these two pieces. Four of his paintings appear in the back ground, and the foreground has influence and reference to a couple of his works. Ironically his Collins street painting has a similar composition, I believe sub consciously this was done on purpose. His paintings feet quite nostalgic and have a great sense of family and community. He is a continual influence, and I think Melbourne is lucky to have such heritage in such a great Artist.
