A man dressed in a shirt, tie, overcoat and hat, looks through a pair of binoculars. What he is looking at we do not know. The harsh Australian light casts strong shadows on his face and clothing. This painting is from a series of works called 'The Tourists'. The series was inspired by old photographs of my grandparents. These works explored how people enjoyed their leisure time in the years after the Second World War. It was a time of travel rugs, binoculars, Kodak cameras and thermos flasks. A time of style and restraint at the beginning of our modern era of mass consumption and global travel.
