James Guppy - Australian

Nailing Down the Surf, Acrylic on linen, 45 x 91 cm

The Australian painter James Guppy is carrying on the Surrealist tradition of Magritte and Dali. I'm not a big fan of the Surrealists but when the dream-like element is subtle, as in this work, it works for me. Guppy shares my fascination with the technical achievements of the 18th and 19th century painters.
