DESCRIPTION

The local bushland of Pinjarra and the Darling Range remain the primary source of content referenced within my artworks. Intimate places within these environs are observed and studied to formulate a multi-faceted imaginative landscape composition. The artworks invite us to consider a familiar yet alien landscape populated with anthropomorphic shapes. They are intriguing places of discordant elements where the real and imagined exist within a landscape scarred by the natural and imposed activities of the past. Low and high key colour skilfully combine with a dramatic use of raking light to create vigorous and quiet scenes that are both, subdued and boisterous. The use of expressively bold and nuanced line create artworks with multi-faceted layers of content and interpretation. The artworks present expressions of a landscape where the splendid promise of tomorrow remains as the primary narrative of continuation and hope. These are places of potential, new possibilities and the discovery of the unknown.
