Ivan Eyre, Ivan on Eyre: The Paintings, Pavilion Gallery, 2004, page 206

Ivan Eyre builds his landscape paintings in stratified sections of terrain, formulating a conscious balance between wooded areas and open bush and meadows. In addition, as he explained, “It’s just as important to me to experience the shapes that populate the terrain layers as it is to experience the painting as a sprawling landscape. These shapes bring the details and complexities together in such a way as to give the viewer more to contemplate beyond suggestions of forests and hills.” In this meditative work, the central circular mound – possibly a rock formation – is a distinctive example of this compositional approach, and it creates a strong focus in the mid-ground. This formation focuses and fascinates viewers before their attention moves on to the upper layers of the painting. Each layer of his landscape, or “sub-world,” to use Eyre’s term, is full of detail and luscious colour to linger over, as he expertly brings our eye slowly upward to the misty mountains and sky. Landscapes such as North Hills are more than realist images; suffused by the artist’s complex feelings and memories, they contain an air of mystery that intrigues us.

Estimation : $40,000 - $60,000
