James McAlpine

The two paintings I have submitted are in a series of six. My BFA Honours project was to study the industrial scene along the South Hobart portion of the Hobart rivulet during colonial time, and further explore the sites as they are today. The results were to be expressed as paintings. Like the two paintings exhibited I painted the colonial structures in grey tones and outlined the contemporary buildings in red/orange. My research included archival photographs and paintings, various reports written about the sites and contemporary photographs, taken by myself. I researched the sites from the Cascades Brewery in the west to then Gore Street Mill in the east.
