ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
This bold piece, although a lyrical abstract work, evokes the feeling of earth, sky and water. The movement and vibration in the painting give a notion of history and a state of flux. I prefer the viewer to be drawn into the painting and seek their own interpretation.
I am a Sydney and Jervis Bay-based abstractionist who loves to explore and evoke ideas of an individual narrative. My works are “conversations” between me and the surface, be it paper, timber or canvas, via brush, knife or fingers which work as conduits. I have adopted the saying, “The true purpose of art is to evoke rather than portray.” For the past seven years, I have attended residential courses in France and have also benefitted from some wonderful Australian
teachers over the past 30 years.
