Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the back

This painting belongs to my ‘Life Enlarged’ series and again looks at the tiny minutiae of life and objects, what is real but cannot be seen with normal sight. At a microscopic level, I am inspired by the vastness and sublime of the minutiae of life, the beauty of things enlarged under magnification.
In this artwork I over-enlarged the grid-like patterns found in the weave of muslin fabric and re-shaped it into an ambiguous floaty space. There is a very textural tactile feel as I attached muslin cloth directly onto the canvas surface giving the whole a deep delicate ambiance. This also echoed the original source of the image.
On this already beautiful surface I used my mark making quite primitively. In layers and layers, I manipulated the repetitious lines of the cloth to give the image a feeling of being weightless and floating almost like fishing nets drifting in the ebb and flow of the ocean. Something fragile, dainty, immaterial but also a little mysterious. I wanted the painting to have a boundless shimmer of light and air, sublime and beautiful.
I had a lot fun making this work; I hope you enjoy it too and I love the varied responses to the work.

I have had several successful gallery exhibitions and received some acclaim as an emerging modern artist. My artworks are well received and enjoyed by audiences around the world. David Thomas in his essay on my artwork describes my paintings as ‘seriously considered works of technical and creative assurance.’ I aspire to make beautiful original artworks from my studio in Melbourne, Australia.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls finesse and with a splash of colour for years to come.
