2011 Small Works

The paintings in this gallery were completed in my studio for Retrospect Gallery's Petits Travaux exhibition.

I have fallen in love with Central Australia. It has changed my art practice in profound ways. Walking alone through the landscape, drawing, and recording through the lens of a camera have resulted in a new way of seeing. 



When painting, my main concern is with how an image evolves: the layering of colours, shadows and textures; the way abstract marks elude to something observed; the sensual relationships that form on a page. This process is influenced by decisions that fall, collide, react, change and finally resolve. It is often a struggle against my own logic.
