My work is not representational of the landscape but conveys a more subliminal concept, a feeling of awe and splendour.
Rather than copying nature I want to interpret it. This work has been the result of my connection between the land and myself. Shifting to Central Victoria has had a direct influence on my work. My eyes are continually being drawn upwards towards the sky. The soft light and the hazy effect it has on the landscape intrigues me. The place where the light hits the land on the horizon fascinates me, the effects of the illumination is beautiful.
I use the colours that I see in the earth and the atmospheric qualities of the sky, incorporating texture to represent a relationship with this land. The layering and the scraping back of different mediums is significant. It represents a symbolic and spiritual reference to this land.”
