David Frazer

David Frazer’s intricately detailed wood engravings, etching and lithographs indicate his great command of a range of printmaking techniques. His work explores a sense of place, and the emotions of longing, nostalgia and isolation that can accompany it – with the universal yearning to be ‘somewhere else’ a common thread throughout. It exists in his figures stuck in a bleak Australian landscape, along with those fixed in a foreign locale. Combined with this is a gentle sense of whimsy and humour. Frazer’s skill as a storyteller is always present in the strong narrative component of both his paintings and prints.

On the edge of town (by day) is Frazer’s most recent work published with Port Jackson Press. The rural scene captured is achingly familiar – a back paddock littered with old cars, corrugated iron, and an assortment of junk left to rust. The honesty in its description brilliantly evokes that very real feeling of melancholia. This piece from his most recent body of work views the world from the perspective of the no-hoper or loser, looking in from the outskirts of town.

David Frazer has held over 40 solo exhibitions in Australia, London and China. In 2007 he was the major prize winner of the 1st International Print Biennial in Guanlan China. In 2004 he won the Broken Hill Outback Art Prize. In 2013 he won the Acquisitive award at the Silk Cut Award for Linocuts and won the peoples choice award at the Fremantle Print Award as well as a high commendation. In that same year he won the peoples choice award at the Hutchins Art Prize in Tasmania. In 2014 he won an honourable mention at the International Print Biennial Exhibit held at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art. In 2007 the ABC produced a documentary on Frazer as part of the “Artist at Work” series.
