A Selection of Landscape Paintings
2006 – 2010
Born in 1950 in Renmark, South Australia Tony has lived his entire life in country areas of Victoria and South Australia. The Landscape has always been a major part of his life, as seen by its dominance in his artwork. He is an artist whose work concentrates on the Australia landscape, history and issues.
The artist in him, Tony has sought to observe and record the landscape as he sees it, sometimes desolate, impenetrable, unforgiving and moody, but always beautiful living earth, subject to the tide of human endeavour.
Over the last few years Tony has spent much time on landscape painting. In particular more familiar terrain, the Stringy Bark Creek, Delatite River, the stony rises of Lake Mokoan and the Taminick rocky outcrops to name a few.
Tony has been exhibiting his work since 1982 around the country. His work has been sought after by individuals as well as corporate collectors, and has been shown in regional galleries, as well as Melbourne, Adelaide, Fremantle, Alice Springs, and the Gold Coast. Currently Tony’s paintings are in collections at the National Gallery of Victoria, as well as with National Australia Bank collection, Toyota Australia and ArtBank to name only a few.
“His latest work may appear to be straightforward landscape, but no painting is ever straightforward for Flint. He always infuses his work with wider meaning and that is what makes it art, not just beautifully executed pictures. He is a careful thinker and a wise commentator on people’s fantasies and foibles” Luba Bilu 2008, Luba Bilu Gallery Melbourne.
