Geoff Dyer (b. 1947, Hobart, Tasmania) is regarded as one of Australia’s most respected and collected contemporary landscape artists.
After graduating from art school in the late 1960s, Dyer was an art educator who rapidly established a vibrant painting career.
Dyer has spent most of his career painting the Australian bush, often in the sublime wilderness of Tasmania and the islands of the Bass Strait. He also paints seascapes from notoriously rugged stretch of waters. His works embody the 19th century romanticism of landscapes artists such as Turner with a contemporary vision inspired by Australian modernist Fred Williams.
Dyer has been a finalist on nine occasions in Australia’s premier landscape prize, the Wynne (Art Gallery NSW). In 2003 he was the winner of the country’s premier Art Prize, The Archibald. In 2010 he successfully exhibited in New York in the American Embassy and made as finalist in the Archibald for the tenth time in the following year.
