Vale Graeme Stevenson OAM (1958 – 2022)
A spirit greater than daily life has still left us.
Graeme Stevenson was a extraordinary individual. He had tremendous inventive energies and the dedication to set his concepts about art and the globe into action. We satisfied him when he arrived at our studios one August day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, along with bags of filming and lighting products. We were being quickly impressed with his kindness and sincere desire in our function and our life as artists. Each Graeme and Sophia exuded legitimate enthusiasm and friendliness.
We quickly hit it off. Kindred spirits. They built the job interview and filming process fun and whole of laughter. This was a wholly unique sort of interview working experience. Special. Additional like hanging out with one’s close pals. Just before we realized it, they have been finished, packed up and all set to go. They have been worn out from traveling from Australia and across America, interviewing artists along the way. It has not generally transpired in our life that we have met someone like Graeme. Instant rely on. He was that type of human being. And, he was an achieved and nicely-recognised easel painter on major of it all!
We asked him why he was burning up so significantly vitality and likely painting time to film and produce his Color in Your Lifetime Tv set collection. He stated that he was assisted along in his profession by someone early on, and when he questioned that person how he could at any time repay him, he was advised to “just help other artists like yourself”. So he commenced to pay it forward and we and hundreds of other artists who got to take part in the software and to know him a tiny, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The entire world demands far more folks like Graeme Stevenson. He is missed.
We interviewed Graeme about his personalized artwork two months ago. You can see that job interview and some of his paintings right here.
As it suggests on the Colour in Your Everyday living web site, Graeme’s eyesight was “to construct a library of the minds of artists, preserving a electronic history of inventive spirit, tradition, and procedures for future generations.”
