Being David
2015 Finalist in the Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize: Lismore Regional Art Gallery
Artist Statement: 
David Wolff; legal practitioner, business owner, chairperson, community spokesperson, community activist, supporter of the arts, festival goer... and a long time embracer of the Northern Rivers lifestyle. During our relaxed conversation it became evident that David's interests and passions far exceeded the visual expanse of the trees, hills and surf acting as his homes backdrop. Post discussions it just seemed improper to just crop a face and torso within a canvas frame and say "this is the man". David's persona is more than just his immediate gaze and gestures, his portrait encompasses elements external to his immediate self; his love of Australian music, art and literature; his involvement with theatre groups and historic track and trail; his interest in all things natural to lifestyle and produce. A relaxed persona encapsulating everything around him... This is David!
