ALASDAIR MCGREGOR
Squall Approaching Bushy Islet, Cape York
1996
Lithograph on paper
41.4 x 58.1 cm
Edition: 40

Squall Approaching Bushy Islet, Cape York recalls a brief stop on a remote mangrove cay off the Cape York coast of Queensland while Alasdair sailed from Cairns through the Great Barrier Reef to the Kimberley. As he recalls in Australia's Wild Islands (Hodder and Stoughton, Sydney, 1997), Bushy Islet is unspectacular and unsung, just one little tile of a great mosaic [but] nonetheless an exquisite example of the diversity of the reef and the islands within its bounds.

Over a period of three years from 1993, Alasdair McGregor was fortunate to visit numerous islands off every Australian coast; researching, photographing and painting. The results of this marvellous endeavour were an exhibition — Australia's Wild Islands,held in 1996, and a book of the same title published in 1997. These two lithographs were inspired by that project.

Drawing is fundamental to Alasdair's work, so lithography became a natural choice in printmaking, allowing him to readily explore a love of line and modelling. These prints reflect just two of the endless variety of subjects he encountered in his island wanderings.
