Victor Stafford, Editor
A Tasmanian perspective – the art of Geoff Dyer
Lygate Press, Melbourne 2008
255 x 360mm, hardcover, 157 pp
$89.95 rrp

Primarily a landscape painter but also an Archibald Prize winner (2003) and with more than 30 years of studio practice behind him, Geoff Dyer’s art has much to offer.  He has looked to painting as an unconstricted means of expression, disregarding any element that might hinder his engagement with the canvas.  The results pay homage to Tasmania and the wonderful characters that call it home.

With notes by the artist and contributions from Peter Piece, a former professor of Australian Literature at a number of Australian universities and Damian Smith, a Melbourne based curator and arts writer, this lavishly illustrated publication documents the power and majesty of Dyers’ painting, marking him as a witness to the ever-present landscape at the heart of the Tasmanian experience.
