Exhibition reviews - Newcastle Herald
Art Critic Jill Stowell
March 6, 2004
The first thing one notices about Dion Archibald's paintings of Newcastle is the unified colour, restricted to dusty ochre, an inky blue and warm grey.
Familiar views assume a new character, with the city clustered on the slope above the harbour depicted as seductive urban chaos, reminding us that the artist has spent considerable time recently in Istanbul.
Perhaps in the future we will get to see the works painted in Turkey by this obviously intelligent artist now returned to the Hunter.

Beauty of city caught in oils
February 25, 2004
The work of Maitland artist Dion Archibald is now on show at the Newcastle Art Space but the material is a far cry from recent paintings, inspired by his travels in Turkey.
It is Mr Archibald's first solo show and will be open until March 7.
The oils capture Newcastle's spirit and beauty of the city's coastline and seascapes.
He has revisited his favourite city views.
Mr Archibald was born in Maitland in 1976 and studied visual art at TAFE and the University of Newcastle.
He won the Western Art Prize for still life and his works are in private collections in the US, The United Kingdom and in Turkey.
