Vale Graeme Stevenson OAM (1958 – 2022)
A spirit greater than daily life has left us.
Graeme Stevenson was a amazing man or woman. He experienced enormous creative energies and the perseverance to set his suggestions about art and the world into action. We fulfilled him when he arrived at our studios a single August day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, alongside with bags of filming and lighting gear. We have been right away amazed with his kindness and sincere interest in our operate and our lives as artists. Each Graeme and Sophia exuded real enthusiasm and friendliness.
We right away hit it off. Kindred spirits. They created the job interview and filming process enjoyable and total of laughter. This was a fully various variety of interview knowledge. Special. Additional like hanging out with one’s shut pals. In advance of we realized it, they were concluded, packed up and prepared to go. They were being worn out from traveling from Australia and throughout The united states, interviewing artists together the way. It has not typically transpired in our lives that we have met somebody like Graeme. Instant have faith in. He was that sort of person. And, he was an attained and very well-known easel painter on top of it all!
We questioned him why he was burning up so a lot strength and possible painting time to movie and develop his Color in Your Lifetime Television series. He reported that he was assisted together in his profession by anyone early on, and when he asked that human being how he could at any time repay him, he was instructed to “just assist other artists like yourself”. So he commenced to fork out it forward and we and hundreds of other artists who got to participate in the system and to know him a very little, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The earth requires extra men and women like Graeme Stevenson. He is skipped.
We interviewed Graeme about his personal artwork two months back. You can see that interview and some of his paintings below.
As it claims on the Color in Your Everyday living web page, Graeme’s eyesight was “to develop a library of the minds of artists, preserving a electronic file of imaginative spirit, tradition, and tactics for potential generations.”
