  • The late Pro Hart was one of Australia’s most iconic and polarising artists, his unique landscapes capturing the spirit of the outback with an unrivalled authenticity.  His works are distinguished by their almost semi-primitive style and their use of bold, vibrant colours true to the rich Australian landscapes they depict. Pro’s work was not limited to the outback and mining (both underground and above) but also portrayed life in other circles, including cityscapes, beach scenes and studies of flowers and insects. Throughout his career, Pro Hart held nineteen international exhibitions, illustrated fourteen books and in 1982 received an Honorary Life Membership to the Society International Artistique for his outstanding artistic achievement, an honour that is only granted to one individual per continent. As this Pro Hart original artwork is a resale, we ask that you please check the image of the frame carefully to make sure you are satisfied with its condition.

  • In nearly all of the styles and subjects that David paints, there are subtle elements of his father’s (Pro Hart) secret techniques. David has been left with an incredible responsibility to his heritage, and he feels that it’s up to him now to keep these styles alive. More than that, he sees his challenge is to take his father’s secret techniques to new heights and to push through the boundaries of experimentation and growth as he adapts and integrates them into his own style. David’s Dragonfly and Ants series are quite different to the images painted by his father. David has introduced mixed mediums to his work, and uses acrylic bases as the background to create a shiny, slippery finish. He then builds the insects using layers of glazing, which are then rubbed away then re applied; this allows the image to emerge like light from the darkness. Shadowing is then added to create the illusion that the insect is floating on top of the canvas, giving the completed work a wonderful depth of field. Both the Dragonfly and Ant series, and the continual evolution of style and technique used to create them, insures these subjects will remain among the most identifiable and iconic series of David’s body of work.

  • Inspired by Australian wild flowers, David’s Flower series has become a loving evolution over many years. As he freely experiments with colour and new methods of application, his flower images have taken on ever-evolving textures. David experiments with a wide variety of painting implements, like large broad paint brushes, paint tubes drilled with holes, pallet knives and house hold scrubbing brushes. These paintings are not your typical still-lives either; being thickly laden with paint that seems to struggle to hold itself to the canvas, allows his images to create a sense of energy and movement that’s almost hypnotic, yet, at the same time, gives the viewer a sense of tranquilly and stimulation.

  • David’s Black Dog series is perhaps the most iconic and highly collected of all of his series. Although these works are highly sort after, they are few and far between, and it’s with good reason once you understand the process behind their creation. The iconic black dog that you see in many of David’s works depicts Bogart, his childhood pet. Bogart was a true companion and close friend to David throughout his youth – smart, watchful, protective and ever present, Bogart lives on as the feature character of this sensational series. Interestingly, David’s Black Dog paintings were inspired by left over and cast off paint from his easel and palette. At the end of each day of painting, David often found he was left with extra paint on his pallet and, not wanting to throw it away, he began scraping it onto spare canvas. This process evolved over six to eight months until the canvas was so thick with cast off paint that the frame it was stretched on could barely support itself. At this stage, David would begin work on balancing the piece with paints straight from the tube. Once satisfied with the composition and colour, he would draw on the technique of one of his heroes and mentors, Jackson Pollock; bringing the work to life by embellishing the artwork using enamel. In the final stages after drying, several small black dogs would be cleverly and randomly scattered amongst the folds and drizzles of paint. This allowed the viewer to become actively involved in their visual experience as they searched for each dog. David’s Black Dog paintings are intentionally random, expressive, and purposeful. The Black Dog concept has become hugely successful with collectors, however, due to their thick oil paint and lengthy creation process, there are generally only 4 to 6 of these pieces available per year. This is a very rare artwork as David usually only paints the Bogart paintings at a minimum size of 45 x 60cm.  As it takes as much time to paint this smaller size compared to the larger size, David has decided that he wont paint this series of work at this size again.  Located at the Brisbane studio (Underwood).  Please call 0411 154 334 to make a time for a private viewing.

  • This stunning series of work was inspired by memories of times spent camping by the Darling river, and its many tributary’s and lakes that can be found around the small town of Menindee, New South Wales. Located about one and half hours drive south east of the dusty outback mining town of Broken Hill, the Menindee lake system provided David with both a camping paradise, and some of the most colourful and serine backdrops that nature could provide. Much of the work David creates around this theme, features the rich colours and bird life that this stunning natural paradise is renowned for. In this part of Australia it’s not the desert that creates the horizon, it’s the flooded tree lines, which at certain times of the day create unforgettable mirror reflections across the lakes and billabongs. It’s said that the lakes around Menindee contain more water than Sydney Harbour, some of them are so big that they give the appearance of huge inland seas that seem to stretch on forever. However, the only thing that ever breaks the shore from the horizon on these vast stretches of water, are the twisted and half submerged trees that rise up out of the water, to make homes for the brilliance of the white Water Birds.

  • The exposure series was born out of David’s Inspiration series, intrigued with the concept of being able to dual reverse black and white layering, David wanted to create work that was cut back to its simplest form. The Introduction of metallic paint in this series was a way of David paying tribute to his childhood hero and mentor, Jackson Pollock. Through years of development and experimentation, David has been able to create fluid suspensions and carriers that enable him to pour extremely flexible metallic colours; this has opened up a world of creative possibilities for him. He has no desire to be another Jackson Pollock, but does believe that there is much to be learned from Pollock’s work that can be adapted and expanded upon through David’s own unique application techniques and custom made mediums.
