Literature & references: Robyn Dold, Guy Stuart: 1967-72, TarraWarra Museum of Art, catalogue essay, July 2007: Stuart was dealing with formal issues by investigating, in a series of works, his current vehicle: the bowl. the bowl, Stuart said, evolved in his drawing as an elliptical shape; he started taking straight lines out of the drawings until he was left with only rounded shapes, which developed into drums, vats and bowls. And so, in his mind, the object of the bowl, took shape until it was real enough to paint. the painting itself is overwhelming in the forceful effect of the thick, tangible paintwork. the sombre palette of this [Vat and Disc 3] painting avoids distraction from investigations into density ad transparency, containment and volume. the brushstrokes are careful and studied, but standing in front of this huge canvas one feels drawn into a murky dynamic depth, an entirely convincing depiction of real space. Here Stuart delves into concerns of paint, form and ground without ever backing down on the importance of describing an object in space.
