The online gallery of his paintings, can be accessed for the complete range of his works from pre-1970s to his new work: post-20054. His earlier work had several examples of modernistic, simplistic and abstract art, and several portraits and still-life. The three art works selected from Austen Pinkerton’s works are shown below: (Absolutearts Online Art Gallery). Painting Acrylic, 2003 Title: ‘SUNSET CITY’ Width: 350 mm. Depth: 25 mm. Height: 450 mm. Frame: Wood. Theme: Architectural/ Cityscape.
DESCRIPTION: In this beautiful and carefully executed painting, the splendour and colour of a magnificent city sunset is presented in all its glory. Austen’s art- approach and compelling style is suitable for land, water and city scapes. Strong contrasts provide drama and excitement in the sky’s colours. The cool evening environment at sunset- time is clearly portrayed. The blazing colours of the sunset are seen reflected from the windows and front façade of the building in the fore-ground.
The fiery colours of the sunset off-set the cool atmosphere of the evening. The detailed work, showing the other high-rise buildings in the area, with their structural features clearly etched, is awe-inspiring. This dynamic and challenging work is breath-taking in its beauty. The painstaking piece of art has been executed with an eye to great detail and reproduction of the scene as naturally as possible. The view is from the street, from where it is seen that high above the city sky-line, the banded clouds glow with the blazing hues of sunset.
The play of light and shadow has been done very realistically. Some of the buildings in the background are partially in the shade. Since the essence of the spectacular cityscape has been caught faithfully on the canvas, we feel the same awe at the splendour, as the artist who had witnessed it. Title: ‘THE RIVER’ ACRYLIC PAINTING 2005 Width: 1960 mm.
Frame: Wood Depth: 30 mm. Height: 735 mm. Theme: Landscape/ River DESCRIPTION: A panoramic view of a river as it emerges in rapids between bluffs, over a waterfall with rainbow, and then flows onward towards the sea.
Everywhere there are details of interest: people, buildings, ancient monuments, castles, shipping, etc, shown in minute form. In this beautiful painting, the hand of the imaginative artist manifests in the natural and glowing colours. The painting is evocative, as it makes the viewer imagine himself directly viewing this scenery at the real location.
