Vale Graeme Stevenson OAM (1958 – 2022)
A spirit greater than daily life has still left us.
Graeme Stevenson was a outstanding human being. He experienced enormous imaginative energies and the perseverance to place his concepts about art and the globe into action. We satisfied him when he arrived at our studios one particular August working day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, together with baggage of filming and lights gear. We have been straight away impressed with his kindness and sincere curiosity in our perform and our life as artists. Both equally Graeme and Sophia exuded legitimate enthusiasm and friendliness.
We quickly strike it off. Kindred spirits. They built the interview and filming process entertaining and entire of laughter. This was a entirely distinctive variety of interview encounter. Unique. Far more like hanging out with one’s near good friends. Just before we understood it, they have been finished, packed up and ready to go. They had been exhausted from touring from Australia and throughout The usa, interviewing artists alongside the way. It has not frequently happened in our life that we have met a person like Graeme. Quick have faith in. He was that sort of man or woman. And, he was an accomplished and properly-recognised easel painter on leading of it all!
We asked him why he was burning up so a lot strength and possible portray time to movie and deliver his Colour in Your Daily life Television set collection. He explained that he was helped alongside in his career by an individual early on, and when he questioned that person how he could ever repay him, he was explained to to “just support other artists like yourself”. So he began to shell out it forward and we and hundreds of other artists who received to participate in the plan and to know him a minor, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The planet requirements additional individuals like Graeme Stevenson. He is skipped.
We interviewed Graeme about his particular artwork two months ago. You can see that job interview and some of his paintings listed here.
As it claims on the Color in Your Lifetime website, Graeme’s eyesight was “to develop a library of the minds of artists, preserving a electronic document of resourceful spirit, society, and strategies for upcoming generations.”
