ESSAY
'The only way to do justice to a man like Lawrence who gave so much, is to give another creation. Not explain him but prove... that one has caught the flame he tried to pass on’.1

Having first discovered the work of D.H. Lawrence during a trip to Papua New Guinea in 1968, Garry Shead immediately discerned significant affinities between his own experiences and those of the author who wrote his novel  Kangaroo while living in the coastal township of Thirroul on his visit to Australia in 1922. As Grishin elucidates, ‘When Shead speaks of Lawrence the word 'synchronicity' features frequently; he uses the word in the sense of the strange coincidences or correspondences... [A]t various forks in the road of his life, Lawrence crops up - when he was in New Guinea and decided he would marry Merril, he was reading Lawrence's letters; it was in Vence, where Lawrence died that he met his wife Judith... He introduced Whiteley to 'Wyewurk', Lawrence's cottage at Thirroul, and it was from the house next door... that they painted their diptych ( Portrait of D.H. Lawrence, 1973). Whiteley could also feel the presence of Lawrence hovering around the place; and it was at Thirroul that Whiteley died’.2

Although unfolding against the steep escarpment and sweeping bush backdrop that unmistakably characterises the landscape surrounding Thirroul on the northern New South Wales coast,  The Observers, 1992 does not offer a literal depiction of a specific incident from Lawrence's  Kangaroo. Exploring universal themes of love and conflict, identity and alienation, the spiritual and the human, instead the work encapsulates the artist's poignant homage to D.H. Lawrence as 'a personal, intuitive response, rather than an attempt to illustrate Lawrence's narrative’.3 Thus, the figures – presumably Richard Lovat Somers and his wife Harriet of the novel – ‘appear strange and ambiguous, taking on the features of Lawrence and Frieda while at the same time, bearing more than a passing resemblance to Shead and his wife Judith’.4 Similarly, the chief antagonist in the novel, prominent ex-soldier and lawyer Benjamin Cooley (whose fictional nickname is ‘Kangaroo’), may here be symbolised by the motif of the omniscient kangaroo looming ambivalently behind the couple enjoying their picnic – the manifestation of a spiritual ‘presence’ rather than a tangible character. A poetic scene – recognisably Australian yet strangely timeless and mythical – indeed  The Observers eloquently embodies the drama and enormous sense of anticipation present in the novel where the reader remains ‘... waiting, waiting for something to happen, waiting for this spirit of the land to strike’.5

Savill Galleries, Sydney (label attached verso)
Private collection, Sydney, acquired from the above in September 2002

EXHIBITED
Garry Shead and the Lyrical Vision, Savill Galleries, Sydney, 21 August – 14 September 2002

ESSAY
Emerging almost seamlessly from the ‘Dance’ series during the late 1990s, the ‘artist and muse’ paintings, superbly encapsulated here by The Angelic Muse, Velázquez 2001 pay tribute to the techniques of the great European Masters - Goya, Velázquez and Rembrandt - by capturing a vision of the Muse that inspired their creative journeys. Thus depicting the Masters themselves in the intimate act of creation, the works typically feature the artist accompanied by the mythical muse of poetry, Erato, who appears as something magical, often hovering spirit-like in the studio and bathed in a radiant light. Notwithstanding the ostensibly secular iconography however, the figures seem to inhabit spiritually-charged spaces – there is profound tenderness in the artist's gaze for whom the Muse is a luminous revelation, guiding the Master's hands, cradling his palette or even taking brush to canvas.

Elaborating upon the importance of the Muse for Shead in his monograph on the artist, Sasha Grishin suggests, ‘Shead felt himself to be one of the few who consciously sought out Erato, and that at certain periods in his life he felt that he both saw her and heard her and that he in a sense was a willing medium through which her inspiration could act’.1 Accordingly, autobiographical undertones may be discerned in works such as the present, with Shead also paying passionate homage to the most profound source of artistic inspiration in his life, namely his wife Judit. Shead had first met the Hungarian-born Judit Englert, a classically-trained sculptor, during the European winter of 1981 – 82 when he was invited to visit Budapest by the Director of the Michael Karolyi Memorial Foundation in Vence. Drawn to Judit as ‘the woman who is my twin of the same kind’2, Shead stayed on in Budapest for a year before the couple eventually returned to Australia and married in June 1983.

As testament to their poignant connection, Shead had begun to include the presence of Judit (or her more abstracted role as 'Muse') in his work from the early 1990s. Indeed, the protagonist Frieda in his celebrated D.H. Lawrence series bears more than a passing resemblance with to Judit with her fine, aquiline nose, angular features and stylized bobbed hair, and equally, her likeness is apparent in the regal figure of Queen Elizabeth II in the important satirical sequence, The Royal Suite which he produced in 1995 – 96. However, it is not until works such as The Angelic Muse, Velázquez with their complex labyrinth of ideas, that Shead most fully explores the insights of this deep and poignant source of artistic inspiration in his life. As Grishin elucidates, ‘Shead is an artist who in most instances has to enter the work by putting himself into the composition – whether he be Lawrence, Prince Philip, a dancer or, in this case, an artist. However by entering a composition this does not mean that he 'owns' it, as painting grows through its own internal logic and momentum; he enters it to give it life, then participates in the delight and agony of its growth and development’.3
