This body of work began with a trip across Australia via the Tanami Desert and Kimberley region, and builds on the work in the Desert Sonnet series.
Experience and memory simmer away together over time, and the landscape - which pulses with life and mystery, whispering stories of vast country, and hinting at the answers to life’s big questions - became the inspiration for this body of work.
Employing a variety of layering techniques, scratched, stencilled and painted symbols, I’ve attempted to recreate the sensation of the things we nature.
The work in the exhibition explores the theme Fathomless from several angles:
the vast distances of our country; the experiences we have for which there are no logical explanations; and the aspects of humanity we simply cannot understand – the things we find impossible to fathom.
