Vale Graeme Stevenson OAM (1958 – 2022)
A spirit more substantial than everyday living has left us.
Graeme Stevenson was a amazing particular person. He experienced great innovative energies and the willpower to place his suggestions about artwork and the planet into motion. We met him when he arrived at our studios 1 August day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, alongside with bags of filming and lights products. We were quickly impressed with his kindness and sincere interest in our get the job done and our life as artists. Equally Graeme and Sophia exuded genuine enthusiasm and friendliness.
We quickly hit it off. Kindred spirits. They produced the job interview and filming course of action entertaining and comprehensive of laughter. This was a completely various kind of job interview experience. Special. A lot more like hanging out with one’s near close friends. Before we understood it, they had been concluded, packed up and prepared to go. They had been drained from touring from Australia and across The us, interviewing artists alongside the way. It hasn’t typically transpired in our lives that we have satisfied someone like Graeme. Prompt have confidence in. He was that variety of individual. And, he was an completed and effectively-recognised easel painter on best of it all!
We asked him why he was burning up so significantly energy and likely portray time to film and develop his Colour in Your Life Television collection. He claimed that he was served together in his profession by another person early on, and when he questioned that individual how he could ever repay him, he was explained to to “just help other artists like yourself”. So he commenced to pay it ahead and we and hundreds of other artists who obtained to take part in the system and to know him a tiny, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The environment needs a lot more persons like Graeme Stevenson. He is skipped.
We interviewed Graeme about his personal artwork two months in the past. You can see that job interview and some of his paintings here.
As it claims on the Color in Your Life site, Graeme’s eyesight was “to develop a library of the minds of artists, preserving a electronic history of innovative spirit, society, and methods for long term generations.”
