Sitting in Dunedin

5-28 October 2015

Recent portraits by Bill Graham

My name is Bill Graham. I graduated from  Art School in Dunedin in 1991 and I have been painting portraits ever since, mainly by commission. I am married to Miri and my four boys are also in Dunedin.

"Sitting in Dunedin" has double application: my practice of running a portrait class; I demonstrate painting from a sitting model. The portraits are of Dunedin people; the environment they are in is the colours they bring or create.

Second my desire to paint biblical narrative in Dunedin settings to concentrate the understanding of them for me; these are citations of masterpieces. It is the content of the story understood in my environment.
