Roger Beale AO - Canberra Australian Artist
Art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I gain great pleasure in creating it, sharing it and collecting the works of others.
My art is very much in the Western tradition – my influences are broad, ranging from urban realists like Hopper, Smart, and Amor to intimists like Hammershoi and the painters of the sublime and transcendental such as Caspar David Friedrich.
The main themes in my art - art and life studies, city life, portraits and landscapes and the sublime are all represented here. My sketchbooks are as close as I have ever got to keeping a diary. They reflect a busy life - too much of it perhaps spent in conference rooms around the world until I moved to painting full time in 2014.
I would warmly welcome enquiries or comments
