The Outback Series was really where David Hart’s career first began. He finds that the best medium to express his love for storytelling, and passion for Australian history and folklore, is with the earthy tones of a paintbrush and oils, or the rich colours of gauche that’s been washed and scrumbled over thickly textured watercolour paper.
Growing up in the dusty, outback mining town of Broken Hill, NSW, has enabled David to not only experience, but to also absorb, the rich colours and depth of the Australian landscape. It is with this knowledge and experience that he has the ability to seamlessly transport his viewers inside each image. The images of his outback series are often humorous, but at the same time, very reflective of his heritage and fascination with the Australian spirit. Although David now lives surrounded by beautiful beaches and lush hinterland, his success has not changed his connection to his roots.
