Scape to Scape is opening on Friday the 6th of April 2018, 6 – 8 pm at Lethbridge Gallery, 11 Wambool Street, Bulimba, Brisbane. The exhibition runs for a month from April 6 until May 6 2018. This is a group show with two other artists and it includes my painting below ‘Quietly’.
‘Big Cloud’ has been highly commended in the finalist group of the Clayton Utz Art Award 2017 at Clayton Utz, Brisbane.
‘New Flower’ is part of the exhibition for the Lethbridge 10,000 award at Lethbridge Gallery, Paddington, Brisbane.
‘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, Surfers Paradise as part of the refurbishment of their suites.
