ARTIST’S STATEMENT
I am a figurative, still life artist who paints in Acrylic on stretched canvas.
My work builds upon other Australian still life painters such as Margaret Preston in the use of Australian flora in the restricted work space of the domestic environment.
My current practice has pushed these limitations with a more esoteric staging that still holds a tangible quality, within the viewers immediate spacial boundaries and with a concrete reality. While at once centred and stable, the fragility of the environment is expressed through the use of delicate dried flowers and bush fire blackened, banksia.
The symmetry and balance of the works is a quest for calm amidst the current world uncertainty. The use of reflection and transparency is both a literal and spiritual call for truth and serenity.
