Graduation 2021/2022: Exhibitions


Paintings in my Just Now series were inspired by specific moments spent in my home, garden and surrounding bushland, mostly during recent lockdown periods.

Through hard-edged abstraction, I suggest the built and natural environments but do not directly represent them. I try to capture and convey something I have directly observed or experienced, for example the effect of the sunlight, a mood or emotion, or the changing time of day.

I use bold and engaging colours that attract and sustain attention. In most of the paintings, a stripe motif, repeated at irregular intervals and in uneven configurations, holds and directs that attention. Saturated and desaturated colours combine with different, and sometimes illusionary, geometric shapes to disrupt the picture plane. Shapes form and appear to tilt forward and backward, suggesting both atmospheric and linear perspective at play. These are paintings to wander into, out of and back into again.
