Anthony Cahill

Anthony Cahill has been exhibiting in commercial and public galleries in Australia and abroad since 1982. His work explores notions of Landscape and human presence within a contemporary representation of landscape painting. Images are derived initially through direct observation; his subjects are varied usually involving a figure in landscape, working without concern for formal boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Cahill enjoys exploring notions of the absurd and his working method is intuitive and improvisational. Cahill is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Drawing department at the National Art School.
