Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

I love the colours of inland Australia. I love the vastness and the textures and patterns. This work is a nod to 2 of the many artists who have had an impression upon many of us. Rover Thomas shows us something about our country and its vast spaces, converting them into massive areas which sit sensually on the canvas. The idea of mapping and tracking is of interest to me. Henri Matisse fills his spaces and shapes with masses of pattern and singing colours, having in turn been influenced by oriental art and decoration. The large round shapes that I have used, have been evident in much of my work since visiting Riversdale where I actually saw for the first time, the four boulders sitting poised on the edge of the Shoalhaven River that Arthur Boyd so often painted. Their massive bulk and weight are lightened by their relationship to each other which is one of gentleness, support and a certain human quality.

Torn textured paper representing the wild coastal peninsula that is alight, is contrasted with the smooth blue (but not for long) skies. The darkening ocean reflects the anger of the fire and the burgeoning smoke.Collage of torn, tactile papers with equally tactile paint produced by the heavy impasto oil paint. These are contrasted with the wiped, smoother grey ominous smoke filled sky.Cool misty quiet bush or rain on the window. A calm work that imbues a human gentleness. The 2 jars are slightly distorted and leaning in to each other to emphasise the comfort and trust the 2 people can have.
