The drought has devastated our parkland garden and yet there are floods up north!! Our landscape has suffered so long through global warming and now we are getting payback from mother nature. I hesitate to use the term ‘mother’ as it sounds a bit cheesy but let’s be honest she provides our life source - food, air, enjoyment , beauty and mystery. My recent landscapes depict the concept of nature’s retaliation through strong large and powerful representations such as ‘Eye For An Eye’ symbolising the wrath of nature’s extreme weather conditions, violent storms, cyclones and punishing outcomes. Hopefully the audience will enjoy the visual effect of the work but more importantly will reflect upon the continued destruction of our natural environment and the ultimate consequences.
In the painting ‘Infinity’ I have attempted to reflect upon the mystery of space, life on earth and beyond. This work is seductive and invites the audience to float above the clouds, to think of life in more philosophical terms, to de-stress and be lateral in their thinking about life’s choices.
The paintings WINTER and DARK SIDE gallery 3 are moody, mysterious and possibly threatening - extreme forces
Thanks to everyone who came to my studio during the Art Studio Trail. I really appreciated your interest in my work and enjoyed the conversations we shared about art in general. Many paintings were sold and two commissions taken so it was a successful event all round. I hope to see you and your friends again so please don’t hesitate to contact me on 02 4883 7325 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to keep in touch or see my works finished or in progress.
Our parkland parkland garden is in its spring glory and continues to be an amazing source of inspiration.
