Greg Hansell: Purity of Australian Light

By Beagle Press

Greg Hansell is a landscape painter known for his exclusive devotion to pastels, some of which he makes himself. He is best known for his corrugated iron subject matter which features frequently in his work. He is the Art School Director of The Royal Art Society Art, where he has been teaching since 1997.

Hansell has lived in the Windsor and Hawkesbury district for many years, where he has a house, studio and a large flourishing garden which often features in his work. His interest in this historic part of NSW stems from its association with Arthur Streeton and Charles Conder who worked in the area in the heyday of Australian landscape painting. His most recent works, the result of a greater freedom in his use of pastels, are an impressive series of landscapes which have extended the direction of his work.

He has been hung in the Art Gallery of New South Wales Wynne Prize numerous times and is twice winner of the Mosman Art Prize.

This book covers Hansell's work from 1982 to the present day. It has an introduction by Lou Klepac who selected the works, an essay by Carol Roberts, and recollections and notes by the artist.
