Work in progress

Leave a comment

These new paintings consisting of oil on canvas are untitled and unfinished showing details of each canvas. Their destination is for exhibition at ArtSpace, Great Ocean Road, Anglesea, Victoria, Australia.

I am exhibiting with a friend who shares a love of a landmark/form, Point Roadknight. We often take shots before dawn and watch sunrises where colours and forms produce interesting effects.

We are also interested in exploring many aspects of this site. Shapes of its remnant of a petrified forest, erosion of rock and resulting strange shapes, the forces of nature and the romantic sublime beauty of this stunning place.

Untitled and unfinished detail.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
