CRABBING IN THE RAIN – Artist Jeff Quigley

Crabbing In The Rain … A piece I was inspired to have a crack at after seeing a painting of a rainy day in a street walk. I thought I’d have a go at a rainy days’ crabbing. It is a painting I enjoyed doing and am happy ( well nearly / never happy ) with the result. It is something different for me, a nice painting theme for a change.

Many of the locals (Emu Park, Central Queensland) will know of this crabbing experience.

Launching the pots, secret spots, lookout for crocs, checking lots.

Lookout for transgressors, dodging the Fishoes.

It is the stuff legends are made of.

GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM – well where’s that – Artist Jeff Quigley

“Go back to where you came from well where’s that” .. Latest artwork by Jeff Quigley

I have always had a fascination with space and more recently with the images generated from first the Hubble and then the Webb telescopes. Absolutely mind blowing stuff. Images from millions of years ago. How our universe was created, how we evolved and how we got to be where we are. We have the opportunity to look at things that are more than likely no longer there. And yes, we could not possibly be alone.

“Go Back To Where You Came From – Well Where’s That?” is a large painting, acrylic on canvas, 155cm x 55cm which I intend to have framed in time for the June Exhibition.

SOCIETY – Artist Jeff Quigley

SOCIETY .. Latest artwork by Jeff Quigley – Just completed this one. (January 2024)

This piece is the biggest artwork I have undertaken to date. It was a long labour of love to paint this particular theme. I have absolutely no idea how many hours I have spent on this one as I lost count at about sixty hours and that was some time ago.

“Society” is all about my opinion on the wonder technology of mobile phones and where it has taken us or should I say where we have been lead to.

“Society” is acrylic on canvas, and a bloody large painting 122cm x 92cm. It is my latest work and hopefully will be accepted into the next exhibition at the Emu Park Art Gallery which will be opening on the 8th February.

NEVER ENDING STEPS TO THE TOP – Artist Jeff Quigley

This one has gone to a good home…

Never Ending Steps To The Top.. Latest artwork by Jeff Quigley

I decided to have a bit of fun with this one and incorporated the illusory effect of the “Penrose Stairs”. You never reach the top (let your eyes follow the steps).

Those that are unlucky enough to know me will know my feelings about the subject matter involved within this work and the said steps.

17 years is a long time to wait to win something but who is counting. I know I am and enjoying it and hope that it continues. I mean what is one more year?

FOGGY MORNING RUN – Artist Jeff Quigley

FOGGY MORNING RUN.. Latest artwork by Jeff Quigley – Another painting finished

Foggy Morning Run … Firstly, my apologies for the quality of the photo. I had hell to play trying to get a decent shot. Photography and camera work is definitely not my forte.

Re this painting: One of the many voices inside my head was requesting another fog inspired piece. Well, finally, this is it. I lost count of many joyous hours I spent doing this “Foggy”. (50 to 60 hours at least) But I can honestly say that the grass areas on the side of the track were done at least 8 times including 3 complete paint overs. It is a wonder the neighbours did not report the foul language to the local constabulary.

‘It’s Time We Walked’ – Artist Jeff Quigley

This one has gone to a good home…

My inspiration as was for my previous painting ‘YES, and be on the right side of History’ is because of my strong belief that it is 2023 and the time is now to recognize that this continent was not and never was Terra Nullius (vacant land – no one living here) and we should therefore enshrine in our constitution an Indigenous voice to parliament.

At this point in our history it is not dividing us but revealing us, who we are.

It’s Time We Walked, Framed acrylic on canvas, a large painting 70cm x 50cm. It is my latest work and hopefully will be hung in the next exhibition at the Emu Park Art Gallery. That exhibition will be open to the public the 11th October.

CATCHING THE RATTLER – ALL STATIONS TO THE CITY (circa 1970s) – Artist Jeff Quigley

Catching the Rattler, All stations to the city (circa 1970s) … This work was inspired from my memories of being one of the thousands of commuter cattle that boarded the Red Rattlers each working day morning to make our way to the City (Sydney NSW). The station portrayed is my home station Gymea on the Cronulla Line.

Catching the Rattler, All stations to the city (circa 1970s) is Framed and is acrylic on canvas, a large painting 70cm x 50cm. It is my latest work which has now been accepted into the new exhibition at the Emu Park Art Gallery which opened June the 17th.
