Buy artwork at artFido by carmichael, gordon rohan - grwc (0)

Location: Lewisham, Australia

I am self taught artist who placed himself and refined his style whilst living in isolation in the Australian bush for 10 yrs, No electricity or outside influences like t.v or access to other artist work or galleries is what I believe attributed to my free thinking work. I would paint during the day and sometimes at night under candle light but most of the time the evenings would be sitting in silence and contemplating my work. Images would come and I would dissect them in my head and think about how I would then construct the work, The canvas would end up directing me and let me know when it's finished.
I would construct the canvas frames and stretch the canvas over them myself, This skill also lead me to making round canvases..which i have now sold dozens.
In 2001 an art patron offered me 3 months to live in Switzerland and paint a show. The work sold in one weekend which enabled me to buy my bush property give me the confidence and start my journey as a working artist.
