Rod Spicer - A Long Summer


Exhibition dates 23 May - 13 July 2024

 A Long Summer

.... steeped by shivering shadows

     all summer long it falls

     by mountain stream

     where poets dream -

     in shimmer in shadow

     it's ghostly echo

     into your bones it crawls....

Rod Spicer has lived in the Manning Valley for many years and is well known for his beautiful paintings of the local area, from the bush to the coast.  Exhibiting regularly in the Hunter Valley and Sydney, his works are included in many private and corporate collections.

Rod Spicer's contemporary works encapsulate the light, beauty and mood of the Australian landscape.
Reminiscent of Streeton or McCubbin, the canvases of lush paint, fluid brushstrokes and striking colour evoke admiration and awe of our natural landscape. Rod's mastery of his medium is evident with bold use of colour, capturing the mood and light of the changing times and seasons. Spicer's works transcend time and explore the mythology of landscape, often stirring sensations and emotions in the viewer.
