Gavin Fry, Author

In this first detailed monograph of Graeme Drendel’s oeuvre Gavin Fry draws on the artist’s sketchbooks, diaries and unpublished photographs to explore the influences on his distinctive style. From recollections of his childhood in Ouyen, with the featureless skies of the Mallee, through to the impact of Italian Renaissance artists Piero della Francesca and Masaccio, this publication brings together three decades of the artist’s work in a richly illustrated volume.

First published in 2016 by Australian Galleries Publishing in association with Graeme Drendel. Hardcover, 207 pages, full colour illustrations
