Julian Meagher

Down Through the Last Door

Oil on Linen

122cm x 91cm

We watched Julian’s work for some time and were determined to secure this treasure we had seen in a sneak peak for the Contemporary Art Fair in Sydney, with Olsen Irwin Gallery.

Having trained and qualified as a Medical Doctor and Surgeon, Julian left the medical profession to pursue painting full time some ten years ago.  He has had many group and solo shows and has been a finalist multiple times in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize, and the Archibald and is widely collected both in Australia and overseas.

His still life paintings have translucency about them which allows the light to shine through the bottles and light up what lies behind.  In this case beautiful flowering gum nuts, leaves and flowers.
