Artist Statement

“Across the Country” refers both to my recent move to Sydney from Perth and at the same time to my affinity for “landscape” spaces and colours in my work—landscape, yet not landscape—the colours but not the images of sky, sea, sand etc.

My work is non-representational, in that I seek to evoke feeling, space and atmosphere, with no particular "story" or message. More a "landscape of the mind", often strong in mood; contemplative pieces to be taken in at leisure, in different lights. I imagine it somewhat as music, speaking directly to the viewer, suggesting an often unnamed emotional state.

“Truth is beauty, beauty truth, that is all you know on Earth and all you need to know.” - John Keats

Exhibition dates: 12–24 June
