Simon Gunning: Drawings and Paintings From the Gulf 

We all have friends who came here for a visit and never left. That's what happened to painter Simon Gunning, who has lived in Bywater for 25 years. His plane from his native Australia to London, where he had an art school scholarship, had a "brief" layover in the United States, and he's been here ever since. An avid sailor, he routinely explored the coastline along the Gulf before losing his sailboat to Katrina. His most recent work depicts the unusual ambience created by the fishing and maritime industries in a setting of profound natural forces. "For me, the measure of an artist is his or her ability to render forms directly from nature," says Gunning, whose new paintings capture the storied luminosity of the region where the river meets the sea. -- D.
