Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This was an artwork I painted as part of a series, where I was exploring the limitations on personal freedom. I did this by asking people to climb inside a cardboard box and image that the walls of that box were the barriers that prevented them from feeling truly free. I was interested in how people reacted to this situation. In this particular painting I felt like there was exterior impression of calm that hides a tension.

This oil painting is a panoramic of ochre pits at Lyndhyrst in South Australia. The painting is pictured with a high horizon and a dramatic cliff of earth colours.This is an oil painting of sand dunes from a beach at Phillip Island.  It has a painterly application, the brush strokes being quite obvious, giving a feel for the strong winds the blow through the grasses. There are lovely muted blue/green colours in the grasses  and I feel the overall palette of this artwork to be quite calming.This is a large oil painting of a bunch of flowers scattered on the ground that I painted from life. This is a large painting of a woman naked and vulnerable curled-up inside a cardboard box. The cardboard box takes up the entire composition. The woman is upside down with her head in an extremely uncomfortable angle and is quite cramped inside the box.
