Snow scenes number among William Kurelek’s most popular and beloved subjects.
The Skating Party brings many generations of a family together in a playful narrative. Teetering on skates, both the old and the young tumble and zip across the ice clad in warm, vividly-coloured winter wear. While some are sure-footed on the slippery, blue surface, others are encouraged or supported by their loved ones to hold firm to their balance.
There is an excitement and an energy to the wintry scene, a feeling of love and camaraderie, that remains unfettered by the cold.
