David Voigt was born in Sydney in 1944 and studied at the National Art School from 1964 to 1968. Between 1969 and 1972 he lived and exhibited in France and Holland with extensive travels throughout Europe returning to live and work in Australia in late 1972. Among his many awards are the Blake Prize in 1976 and the Blake and Wynne Prizes in 1981. He is represented in the National Gallery of Australia and State Galleries of WA, Queensland and Tasmania as well as numerous Regional Galleries, and Internationally in the Utrecht Collection of Contemporary Art – Holland.
Looking into, rather than at, a David Voigt painting is to look into the artist’s mind. What you find there may at first seem to be an uneasy balance between nature’s unending array of natural forms of beauty and stark contrasts, and abstraction by machine-like geometric shapes and spaces that Voigt often chooses as borders to section off nature’s elements. The initial misjudged unease gives way to the realisation that what he is offering is a kaleidoscopic view of his landscape, as seen by his mind’s eye. His paintings are personal reminiscences of visited landscapes re-seen in his studio and not necessarily of any particular place or point in time.
