The work I make reflects my passions – nature, spirit, mindful presence, connection, exploration, freedom.... The landscapes explore transience and the aesthetic of ‘the drift’ and seek to evoke glimpses of a reality that is ‘beyond knowing’. The images are drawn from encounters with nature – experiences of ‘events’ in the natural world that ground me, but at the same time allow me to drift into unexpected spaces and imaginative possibilities. Photos like the one below provide the initial source material for the studio oil paintings. The finished paintings take on their own unique voice, reflecting the keynote of feeling evoked by the original experience in nature.
You will have the opportunity to see all my recent work and speak to me in person at to my forthcoming exhibition, 'Drifting' at Art2Muse Gallery in Double Bay, Sydney in June. The opening function is 6-8pm, 25 June. The exhibition continues 23 June - 5 July.
