Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner in 2010

    Contemporary Australian artist, Tim Storrier, is most widely known for his surreal depictions of fires in the Australian outback. Born in Sydney, Storrier's often large-scale canvases, feature recurring motifs of burning logs and floating fragments of scorched paper amongst others which are constructed with a deep understanding and affiliation to the subject. This present work The Night Winds (Capricorn) painted in 2010, showcases the artist's fascination with these themes; he constructs an illuminating glittering nightscape that is boldly disrupted by the fiery, glowing embers on the land below. Large in scale, this beautiful work is a sterling example of Storrier's masterful oeuvre.

    Storrier has been awarded the Order of Australia AM for his service to art and has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Today his paintings are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
