Books Info:

The Solitary Watcher free pdf Rick Amor - painter, printmaker and sculptor - is one of Australia's most distinguished contemporary artists. He is, perhaps, the only significant artist of his generation who has never been tempted by abstraction. In his commitment to figurative art he is the heir of the Antipodeans and has long held what were until recently, unfashionable ideas about modernism. In this text, a full-length work on Rick Amor, the author writes of the lanscapes of Amor's childhood that haunt his later paintings- of Amor's close frienship with Joan and Daryl Lindsay- his long relationship with the labour movement- and his professional attachment to older artists such as Clifton Pugh and Ian Armstrong. The main focus is on Amor's paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. "The Solitary Watcher" offers a detailed and coherant examination of the development of Amor's art. Aomr's paintings of Melbourne form the suburban Frankson of his childhood to the narrow lanes of the inner city now rival those of Albert Tucker in thier resonance and authority, and have seeped into the consciousness of the general public to acquire to acquire the status of defining images.
