Rick Amor is among Australia’s most collectible artists. His work is psychologically incisive, taking ordinary landscapes and filtering them through an emotional prism. For Amor the city’s backstreets become sites of alienation, melancholy and melodrama. A sense of foreboding percolates, as though something is about to strike.

In a review of Amor’s exhibition at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Sebastian Smee wrote of Amor: “there is nobody really like him… his commitment [is] unmistakable, his intelligence, acute and his best images impossible to forget.”

Amor has been the subject of numerous public exhibitions at the Art Gallery of South Australia, the National Portrait Gallery, Castlemaine Art Gallery and Australian Print Workshop. In 1999, he was appointed Australia’s official war artist and is the subject of two major monographs.

This screen print demonstrates Amor’s mind at work: his understanding of atmosphere, light – and like Jeffrey Smart before him – the poignance of the external world. For collectors of contemporary and important landscape art, Amor is a striking find.
