‘Into Blue’ is a finalist in the Clayton Utz Art Award 2016 in Brisbane.
This painting’s cloudy image could be read either as the merging pattern of river with ocean, as the plume from a chimney or as smoke from an explosion.
‘Closer’ has been selected for the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize exhibition 2016 held at the South Australian Museum, Adelaide.
The painting could be variously read as a storm cloud, as industrial emissions, a dust storm, smoke from a bush fire, or as ash pouring from a volcano. Cloud symbolises the nebulous, the uncertainty of knowing how to pace the use of natural resources against the environment’s natural rate of recovery. My intention is in no way didactic or to seek objectivity. I aim for ambiguity rather than to make a statement or declare an answer.
My painting ‘Flutter/Lurk’ has been acquired by Jupiters Hotel and Casino, Surfers Paradise as part of the refurbishment of their suites.
