“Tasmania’s pristine environment provides a unique clarity to the play of light on water and warm hues of sand and soil.”
Stuart’s paintings capture the vast array of moods Tasmania offers on its coastal plains and rugged interior ~ with the East and South West Coast being a particular passion.
Working in oils and acrylics, Stuart paints predominately abstract land and seascapes. The work is usually on a larger scale; with canvasses in excess of 91.5cm and 183cm.
Stuart is one of Tasmania’s most recognised artists. His work has been well received by the public and the wider arts community, having been recognised by several significant art prizes and commissions.
His work now hangs in both public and private collections throughout Australia and overseas, including the U.K, Denmark, Ireland, Singapore, Canada, New Zealand, and San Francisco.
Born in 1968; raised and educated in Tasmania, he holds both a Bachelor and Masters Degree. Stuart currently resides with his wife Alison and their three sons Jonty, James and Lachlan in West Hobart, Tasmania.
