Catalogue text

Gould Galleries was instrumental in organising the location and loans to numerous exhibitions including David Larwill: Stuff that Matters, Ballarat Art Gallery in 2002, David Larwill: Ten Years On, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery in 2013.

David was easy to get along with, his charm, wit and directness were rewardingly disarming. He wore his heart on his sleeve … his sleeve was his canvas. I lost more than just an artist.
