Riverland

 

These paintings are inspired by the Cox's River in the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. During the last two years the river has been affected by severe bushfires and drought.

River Country

 

These paintings are inspired by the Cox's River in the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. The cycle of life and death is an underlying theme.

Undercurrents

 

Memory and landscape seem to go hand-in-hand.

In my 2009 exhibition Undercurrents, I extend the themes of memory and the inherent mystery of landscape by exploring the suggestiveness of water expanses such as rivers and lakes in Sydney and surrounding areas.

Landscape Of Memory

 

My paintings do not attempt to replicate the appearance of specific locations. Rather they offer the viewer an opportunity to reconnect at a sensory level with places they may have experienced. Techniques of layering, blurring of edges and muted colours seem to echo the landscape of our memories.

Narratives of Bush and Lake

 

In the 2010 exhibition I tried to capture the way we experience the bush - glimpsing the ambiguous masses, the variation in colour, the scribbly lines and the enigmatic shadows.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruminations

 

Ruminations is inspired by the river country in the Megalong Valley, in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. The title is derived from the cows and bulls
("ruminants") on the family farm and my " ruminations" about their existence, their herding habits and their relationships.
