'Homesickness' is an image of poetic longing. In it, David Frazer etches a lone figure on a roof, evoking a sense of awe and isolation. The setting is rural – a weatherboard house girt by grasslands, a water tank its only companion. With his particular deftness, Frazer captures a universe of feeling in a single frame.

'Homesickness' forms part of ‘Footprints’, a suite of prints by sixteen Central Victorian artists that coincided with the international printmaking conference IMPACT 7 2011: Intersections & Counterpoints’. Exploring themes of sustainability, reconstitution and recycling, ‘Footprints’ celebrated the Central Victorian landscape, experimental printmaking and the importance of conservation.

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 national public collections and internationally at the National Museum of China and the Royal Academy of Art in London.

For collectors of contemporary art and works on paper, 'Homesickness' is a spellbinding twist on small-town beauty.
