The Australian Landscape has a powerful energy at its core, it's a majestic place, an ancient land and the more I explore, the more its true spirit reveals itself. This suite of expressionist paintings brings landscape, memory and history together as the catalysts to showcase an emotional response to the essence and vibrancy of our beautiful, and at times, harsh terrain.
I rely on instinct to move the work forward; layer by layer the narrative is simultaneously concealed and revealed, this process continues until I feel the piece has been aesthetically resolved. My intention is to exude an energy or strength within the work that connects the audience to the work on an emotional level.
