As I See It
Fred Bullen joined his local art society on the Mid North Coast when he moved from Sydney 15 years ago and he's never looked back. He started with traditional landscapes on canvas, then moved onto large format boards for abstract works, often with very heavily textured surfaces. His inspiration comes from the local bush and beach which are then reproduced in one of many styles such as ‘abstracted realism’. He has won awards for his works which are currently displayed in galleries in Forster, Taree and Port Macquarie as well as local cafes. He also enters his work in the regional annual agricultural shows and art society Art Exhibitions. As much as Fred enjoys the challenge of painting a wide variety of subjects using an equally wide range of techniques, his greatest pleasure comes from hearing that an artwork has unlocked a heartfelt memory for the viewer.
