I'm delighted that after spending my formative years growing up in Toowoomba I'm now represented by that city's premier gallery, Tosari Galleries, Margaret Street. Working with Rosie and staff there has been a delight. I'm very fortunate to have 9 galleries representing me from London to New York, Brisbane, Noosa, Maroochydore, Sydney, Melbourne, Sorrento, Mt Tamborine and now Toowoomba!
Musicians from Brisbane band, KOOII were on hand to help celebrate the opening of David Hinchliffe's exhibition, "Here There and Everywhere" at Graydon Gallery, 29 Merthyr Rd, New Farm on Oct 5. A group from the NSW Art Gallery also attended the opening along with more than 50 locals and visitors from Sydney and Melbourne. This video was prepared by Alice Hinchliffe Productions.
Paintings often go through a number of iterations before an artist feels they're ready for display in a gallery. Here are 3 paintings by David Hinchliffe which have been through various iterations, some of them taking more than a year until the artist was finally satisfied. Each panel represents the one painting. The first (a Poinciana tree in Merthyr Park, New Farm) has had two iterations. The second ('Abbott Street Spring") has had 3 versions over a period of almost 2 years, starting with a monochromatic streaked blue version and ending with the pared back green version. The last painting of diners at the French cafe, Les Deux Magots, has undergone 4 different phases, ending in the final version where two waiters were added.
