A New work

Title: Then She Was Rising Size 120 x 90 cm

20-07-2022

After a 3 month break spent insulating and rearranging my studio, this is the first new work.

It sat in my studio with just the background and chair for months.

I feel I got that sense of floating or rising well in this one.

Surprisingly it was sold even before it was finished thanks to instagram and Traffic Jam Galleries.

Altitude of the Mind​

Altitude of the Mind is a work exploring the idea that the conscious  mind is the high country and that not every idea flies.

A new work for my up coming Mini exhibition at Traffic Jam Galleries 15 – 30 March

Sky Plant, Comfortable Orchid Size 90 x 90 cm

This a work for my up coming mini exhibition of eight works at Traffic Jam Galleries in Neutral Bay, Sydney. Running March 15 – 30.

This old green, felt arm chair has a kakadama ( moss ball ) orchid floating within the chair but not touching it. Its it coincidence or is there a connection between there two? Both are depicted high above the clouds. A jarring setting for such personable items. It raises the questions, why? How? 

Have fun answering them, or not.

A New Direction

Title: Dancing With Nautili, Size 90 x 120 cm Acrylic on Canvas

I’ve been working towards a way to include the human figure for a while and  this is the best resolved attempt thus far. I’ve just sold this one through Boltspace in Maitland. A collector from Newcastle seemed to agree with me. It brings together the joy of the dancer with the isolation of a practice space. Yet the freedom to imagine flowing with the nautili as she feels the energy of the dance, transcending, if just in the moment, that isolation. 

I had a lot of joy in capturing the distressed, decaying room, but what I really am happy with is the light falling across the subject from left to right.
