David Frazer spent his childhood growing up amidst the flat wheat fields of the Wimmera region in Victoria’s west. He felt himself an outsider, torn between a love for the region and a desperation to escape it.

‘I really wanted to write songs - really beautiful, sad songs. I tried, but I just couldn’t do it.’

Instead, over the past several decades, Frazer has established himself as one of Australia’s finest print artists, working particularly in wood engraving and linocut.

All that you’ve loved brings together a collection of Frazer’s work, offering visual form to the lyrics of some of his favourite songwriters and a reflection of the human experience of life, love, disappointment and hope.
