Geoff Page, Poet

Geoff Page, Poet, Canberra, Archibald Portrait entry 2020
Geoff Page, poet Acrylics 75 x 100 cms I have tried to capture a particular aspect of Geoff’s personality; the one I most associate with him. It is not aloofness. It is more of a laid-back attitude and the ability to quietly watch what is going on around him without needing to be the centre of attention. His observations of peoples lives and interactions are reflected in his poetry. I have him seated at eye level, ready to converse or listen. Like his personal surroundings, I have kept my portrait uncluttered, almost simple and straight forward.
