Artist: Raymond Arnold
Medium: Photograph on canvas
Artist Location: Wivenhoe
Renowned Queenstown artist Raymond Arnold offers a refreshing take on the West Coast. He has found clarity in the West, a place where he thrives and can produce his internationally sort after art. A small but strong West Coast art culture has grown and in a lot of respects was led by Arnold.
He talks of being constantly inspired to explore the natural and heritage values of the place he calls home – the people and the vast rugged landscape of mountains, forests and rivers. Whilst being a muilti award winning artist Raymond remains down to Earth. One of the more recent wins for Raymond was the 2017 Glover Prize, yet Ray remains humble and welcoming. A guy, his partner, four whippets and art all alive and well in Tasmania’s West.
