Rick Amor is among Australia’s most collectible artists. His work is psychologically incisive, taking ordinary landscapes and filtering them through an emotional prism. Under Amor, the thrashing sea becomes a site of alienation, melancholy and melodrama. A sense of foreboding lingers, as though there is an allegory between the water and its wreckage.

In a review for Amor’s exhibition at the Heide Museum of Modern Art, Sebastian Smee wrote that he is singular: “there is nobody really like him… his commitment 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 the official war artist and is the subject of two major monographs.

This screenprint 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.
