The Last Pool (Ithaca Creek) 2020 oil on canvas 66cm x 66cm

This painting is available through Lethbridge Gallery, Paddington, Brisbane.

Ithaca Creek forms on Mt Cootha, the water rushing down the mountain in rivulets after a storm. On this lower stretch of its course it still flows rapidly after rain, but as time goes by it dries up until just shallow pools of dark water remain.

The making of this drawing preceded the recent bushfires, but the signs were already clear that native wildlife and vegetation were under threat from escalating environmental catastrophe. I wanted to express my appreciation of the beauty and delicacy of the melaleuca in flower, while the blackness of the background portends trouble.

‘From the drama of the storm cloud about to release its power, to the imperceptible but constant movements of a growing tree as it stretches towards the sky, the world is awe-inspiring. I am interested in how our primal psychology responds to the forces of nature.’

‘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.
