Extending on from his beginnings as an award-winning underground cartoonist in the 70’s, Roger is fascinated with how the intuitive mind conjures compositions with their own aesthetic logic.

About Roger Wells

Before he became a singer and songwriter in the late ‘70’s and ‘80’s, Roger was an art student at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

Of that time he says:
‘… the trouble was I was too young. I didn’t have the maturity to understand what I was trying to do with my visual work … which is why, after leaving art school, I switched focus to the more facile satisfaction of drawing black and white cartoons for various underground publications, and singing and writing songs for my bands, the most notable of which was The Little Heroes … but though I was quite successful with my songs, the margins of all my song books kept getting filled with drawings … so it was always there, waiting, the most pure expression of my heart …’

After leaving the music industry in the late ‘80’s, Roger went into a period of review, spending a number of years practicing Vipassana meditation in monasteries throughout SE Asia:
‘… it was during this time that a fascination began to form itself in my core, an inarticulate aesthetic urge that I needed to pursue, which could only be expressed visually. Trouble was, I got diverted into writing books, which took up the next couple of decades …’

Over the next two decades, Roger wrote four books – two non-fiction books about meditation, and two novels – the two novels being ‘Levin’s God’ and the most recent, ‘Sweet Emptiness’ – and the two books about meditation, ‘Happy to Burn’ and ‘Being Still’.
‘… maybe I had to get all the words and ideas out of my head so I could settle into the more intuitive process of making pictures.’

Roger now devotes himself to making pictures and writing his final book, a memoir titled ‘This Perfect Life’. He divides his time between living in Chiangmai in Thailand, and living in Denver, a small town in rural Victoria, Australia.
Of his picture making he says:
‘… each image leads to the next, in a journey to an intriguing place. The underlying aesthetic has been with me so long its embedded in my intuitive mind, so I figure now, all I have to do is keep going.
‘… as far as selling my pictures goes, I try not to think about it too much. So I’ve taken the simplest route, selling them through personal relationships and online, largely because I’m not good at dealing with business things, and I hate asking for money. I learnt from my experiences in the music industry that when it comes to creative work and the energy that drives it, it’s fatal to combine it with business. So I just make the pictures and they go where they go, and that’s that.’

When asked why his recent focus was on drawings instead of painting larger works, he says:
‘… well, the drawings are quite large, but yes, they are no substitute for the comparative gravitas of a larger painting. Thing is, I’ve been living out of a travel pack for over twenty years now, and with no studio to work in I’ve had to keep everything portable. But having said that, my over-riding intention is to begin a series of canvas’s as soon as possible … but I first have to settle into a place where I can make a bit of a mess. And that hasn’t shown up yet …’

Online Art Sale

As a creative, physical medium, art often finds it challenging to adapt. We think this is fairly ironic as art can also be fluid and open to interpretation. Why then, should the showcase of physical art, be restricted to physical galleries?

The artworld is typically a small and secluded one that doesn’t get much attention from the world of technology. We wanted to change that by merging both technology and art to create a virtual gallery and online art sale platform. It is because of its secluded nature that artists find it so hard to break through and get involved and we want to do something about that. Founders Nancy Donaldson and Jarrod Knight started out with a shared goal. To create an easily accessible place for people to see, buy, learn about, and sell art online. Art Lovers Australia has become everything that envisioned and more but most importantly, it’s a community that anyone can be a part of.

How Do I Choose from All the Amazing Art For Sale Online?

When you’re spoilt for choice, choosing your next work of art isn’t easy. Art has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions so you need to first consider the tone you want to set for the space your art will go in. Something relaxing in the living area, something playful where you host guests and something sensual for the bedroom. You don’t want the wrong artwork in the wrong room as it will throw off the mood in that particular area. Another key thing to consider when browsing all the amazing art for sale online is your budget. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you’ve fallen head over heels for artwork that’s out of your price range. Instead of showing you art that is outside of your budget, we allow you to filter your search by price, size, colour, and even medium so you find exactly what you’re looking for when you shop for art online. While you might have an idea of the type of art you’re looking for, it’s important to keep an open mind. Instead of only looking at oil paintings for sale, try not to be so narrow in your search. Broaden it a little bit and you might be surprised by what catches your eye. It could be a photograph that steals your heart in the end.
