A Survey Show of my art practice over the last 20 years, showcasing a selection of oil paintings and charcoal drawings, loaned from public and private collections. The exhibition will showcase works from the western district, my studio years in Melbourne, to the UK and years spent living in the UAE and a recent return to south west Victoria, now dividing my time between Warrnambool & Dubai.
My art practice has been heavily influenced by my years growing up in South West Victoria, and the surrounding landscape has provided much of the inspiration for my oil paintings and charcoal drawings.
The quality of light, mood, space & atmosphere , what moves me... has informed many of these works which explore the contrast of opposites of the fragile & strong, the vast & detail, what lasts, what endures, a longing for , memory based, a reflective and calm quiet place to retreat...
The exhibition will cover the journey of my studio practice from 1995- to the present working in oil paint and charcoal. From windswept cypress & hedges punctuating the vast farming areas , to the fall of light at the end of the day , the landscape emerging through fog, to more recent explorations of shadow & light from my time based in the UAE and my return back to the South West of Victoria to explore again this landscape with fresh eyes.
