Originally from Surat, Rex was a long-time resident of Toowoomba through the 70s and 80s where his career really was established. Now one of the most senior artists in Queensland, he continues to paint contemporary visions of the outback, drawing from its history and inhabitants as much as the actual landscape, but highlighting the less obvious aspects. He has travelled extensively through remote areas of Australia, which ignites his fascination with the land and the importance of recording and sharing its relevance. Highly-regarded and awarded for his skill with watercolour, he has also returned to painting in acrylic on canvas with equally captivating results. Rex has exhibited across Australia and as far as London and Singapore and his work in held in many public and private collections.
