David Rankin’s landscapes are underpinned by three themes: Western and Asian cultures, and the Aboriginal concept of place. There are nods to ‘all over’ painting - that is, imagery with no prime form or subject - as well as JMW Turner’s almost indiscernible vistas. Perhaps most striking however, is Rankin’s practice itself. Privileging process over product, his work follows the curvatures of life, allowing the landscape to reveal itself to him.

‘Clouds Reflected I’ reflects Rankin’s fusion of influences. In minimal lines, he evokes the movement of light. Colours streak past like the sky sinking into night. Abstract yet evocative, to gaze upon it is to remember one’s place in the world.

In 1983 Rankin won the Wynne Prize. He is currently represented in numerous public collections including at the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Queensland Art Gallery. For collectors of abstract and landscape art, Rankin is an enriching find.
