The closing work of David Frazer’s ‘Broken House’ suite, ‘The Path’ is spellbinding. It is the only coloured etching in the series, and the only without a building. In place of small-town melancholy, Frazer draws hope — verdant foliage split by a path, winding towards the morning light.
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.
‘The Path’ is a proffering of hope. For collectors of contemporary art and works on paper, it will awe.
