Sticks and Stones

Michael and his brother Gino held this exhibition of their recent works at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.  Dedicated to their mother, whose delicate still life hangs beside a heavily oiled landscape.  There is a love of paint in Michaels work and I came away angry. Angry that people buy stupid prints of dolphins, decorator art at Clint’s Crazy Bargains or attempt an “abstract” after watching DIY shows. If only there were enough buyers to keep our art-flames alight.
