David Fairbairn's portraits are all about the line. Jagged, alive and full of electric energy, these multimedia works are intensely engaging, drawing the viewer in to contemplate the inner life of the (usually) elderly sitter. Known for his works concentrating on the head, such as in Large Head S.A. No.1 (pictured, above) newer works step back to show the seated figure. Hear the artist talk about his work on Saturday, 3 - 4 pm. Stella Downer, 2 Danks St, Waterloo, 9319 1006. Tue - Sat, 11am - 6pm, until September 17.
