  3. 3.        FROM  THE  COLLECTION   LIVE  AUCTION  LOTS   FROM  THE  COLLECTION       IAN  GENTLE     Lowlife  1    |  Unknown   Acrylic  on  canvas,  119cm  x  119cm     1945   –  2009   Ian   Gentle   is  renowned  for   his  sculptural   pieces.  His  trademark  humour  and  wit  was  an  integral     part   of   his   work   which   could   be   described   perhaps   as   more   about   drawing   than   sculpture.     The   elements   of     his   works   have   been   described   as   “a   type   of   personal   hieroglyphics—animated   and   fused   from   a   dictionary     of  linear  memories  that  stretch  time.”   Ian   Gentle’s   work   is   represented   in   almost   all   major     state  galleries  as  well  as  in  extensive  private  collections         SYDNEY  BALL       Tiger  Dawn  |  1974   22/24  Screen  Print,    50cm  x  76cm     Australian  Printmakers  Collection     Having  lived  in  both  New  York  and  Europe  throughout     his  artistic  career,  Sydney  Balls   work   is   a  reflection  of   his   architectural   surroundings.   Working   in   both   hard-­‐   edge   abstraction,   figurative   and   expressionistic   styles,   Balls   use   of   bright   primary   colours   has   remained   a     distinct   entity   throughout   the   development   of   his   artistic   career.   During   the   period   of   the   late   70s,   Ball     was   heavily   influenced   by   the   American   Colour   Field   painters  in  which  their  free  and  lively  use  of  technique     and  colour  are  reflected  his  work.      LAWRENCE  DAWS   Girl  Sewing  |  1977     10  /  40  Etching,    41cm  x  41cm    Australian  Printmakers  Collection    Lawrence   Daws   has   enjoyed   a   long   and   successful   career  as  a  painter  and  printmaker  during  which  he  has    depicted   the   different   characteristics  of  the  Australian   landscape  with  a  unique  sensibility.     The   strange   juxtapositions   of   landscapes,   figures   and    forms   create   a   personal   lexicon   –   a   kind   of   secret   language  –  which   when   put   with   his   technical   mastery,    demonstrates  that  Daws  has  lost  none  of  his  ability  to   tantalize  and  intrigue.
