The Gallery thanks you for your donations towards the acquisition of Sally Robinson's remarkable portrait of author Tim Winton.

We would be grateful for any support you may like to provide toward the acquisition of future works.

West Australian Tim Winton is the author of 29 books, with his work translated into 28 languages. He has won the Miles Franklin Literary Award a record four times, and has twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Most of his novels have been adapted for stage and screen. Listed as a Living Treasure by the National Trust, Winton has long been active in the environmental and social justice spaces. The background text in this portrait is an extract from Winton's essay 'The Wait and the Flow', from his autobiographical collection The Boy Behind the Curtain.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring these works into the collection, and we look forward to presenting the entire series of the 24 beautifully realised photographic portraits.
