Artists books are vital in the development of an artists career but come at a cost. Please help support Western Australian artists to publish and promote their work.
Trevor Vickers is one of the most highly regarded artists currently working in Western Australia. He has been exhibiting for almost 50 years primarily in Melbourne and Perth. He exhibited in the 1970s at the avant-garde Pinacotheca Gallery in Melbourne alongside Australia’s most significant conceptual and post-object artists. He also exhibited at the seminal Field exhibition in 1968 at the reopening of the National Gallery of Victoria. Arguably the most important single exhibition in Australian art history the exhibition included young artists committed to hard-edged abstraction. He is represented in all the major art galleries and museums nationally including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia, Queensland Art Gallery and numerous corporate collections such as Wesfarmers and Bankwest. To date no major monograph has been published on this influential and important artist and is long overdue.
This large colour publication of 136 pages includes commissioned essays by Dr Alex Selenitsch, University of Melbourne and Andrew Gaynor, Curator and Arts Writer. An extensive interview with the artist, Trevor Vickers, by Winthrop Professor Richard Read is also included.
