From the ‘Broken House’ suite, David Frazer’s ‘The Shed’ is a portrait of rural isolation. Set under a broad moon, it treats a lone shed as a dramatic lead, a moon-base planted in an emptied field.

Frazer has won numerous awards for his prints, including first prize at the 1st International Print Biennale, the Broken Hill Outback Prize and people’s choice at the Fremantle Print Awards and Banyule Works on Paper Award. In 2007, the ABC produced a documentary on the artist. His work is held across public collections and internationally, at the National Museum of China and the Royal Academy of Art in London.

Enigmatic and melancholic, ‘The Shed’ dwells on the hopes and loss of what Henry Lawson once designated as the space between “city proper” and “bush”. For collectors of contemporary art and works on paper, it is a spellbinding twist on small-town beauty.
