The Mangrove Series

is quick to point out that these are not landscapes. They aren’t paintings of the mangroves, but his painterly response to the atmosphere and colours of these special wetlands.

An almost imperceptible shift of black on even darker black vibrates across the panel of a triptych. Intense purples and greens, pinks and blues break through the shadows. These works are moody, evocative, powerful and organic. They first take your breath away, then wait for you to exhale as you explore the careful surfaces where the edges of colours meet and light seems to shimmer from the spaces inbetween.

Quick facts:

  • Born 1941, Hobart, Tasmania, moved to Melbourne as a young man with a promise of a job in advertising.

  • Started exhibiting with the Social Realist Group in 1965 and has held solo exhibitions since 1975. Has been represented by Niagara Galleries since 1990, and this will be his ninth solo exhibition with the gallery.

  • A suite of 18 portrait etchings of friends from art and literature circles was recently acquired by the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

  • Lincoln has recently been included in major public gallery exhibitions, at the National Portrait Gallery ( Intimate Portraits) and the highly acclaimed Phenomena – New Painting in Australia 1, curated by Michael Wardell.
