Artwork Description

Watercolour on paper

Signed on the front.

Pattern in nature soothes and satisfies us because of its rhythmic quality and unique imperfections. Like a visual mantra, repetition for me creates a sense of order and a deep state of peace. So I am interested in the way we all seek out, create, and use pattern to express cultural identity and find our place in the world.

This painting featuring a pair of black cockatoos in an Outback landscape scene includes many hours of intricate patterning, and is from a large series of recent works titled' Motif'.

The works in this series are an introspective view of the greater Australian landscape, of the incredible bird life surrounding my inner city home, and the patterns I find in the variety of native and exotic plant species that grow together in its streets and gardens - the tree barks, leaf veins, petals, and fruit. Representing them in my work is a way of sharing my development of connectedness and identity in this place I love and now call home.
