What Critics Say

In Brief: 

“A respect for detail, a great skill in rendering that detail, a humility before nature, openness both to the landscape and the viewer’s experience – this is what makes Denis Brockie’s paintings breathtaking.” Dr Anthony White. BBus (Swin), BA Hons, MA (UniMelb), PhD (Harvard), leading Australian art historian and critic.


“The abstracts are organic, elusive and intriguing; a luxuriant celebration of colour and form, without the usual restrictions form imposes.” Margaret Shields, Lecturer (retired) Queensland College of Art Griffith University.


“Brockie's paintings make an impact with his impeccable use of colour and subject matter that is close to his heart. His seascapes inspire the viewer to take a second look at familiar sights with new eyes and appreciation.” Mr. Richard Blundell, Deputy Director, Griffith University Queensland College of Art
