Fringing the Cay, Heron Island depicts a quiet corner of the well-known Heron Island dat the lower end of the Great Barrier Reef. Casuarinas sigh and pandanus fronds rattle in the afternoon breeze on the edge of the island's collar of white coral sand.
Over a period of three years from 1993, Alasdair McGregor was fortunate to visit numerous islands off every Australian coast; researching, photographing and painting. The results of this marvellous endeavour were an exhibition — Australia's Wild Islands,held in 1996, and a book of the same title published in 1997. These two lithographs were inspired by that project.
Drawing is fundamental to Alasdair's work, so lithography became a natural choice in printmaking, allowing him to readily explore a love of line and modelling. These prints reflect just two of the endless variety of subjects he encountered in his island wanderings.
