Lowtide, soft breeze

This work is about taking a slow walk along the shoreline track at Greens Beach as it heads towards the Narawntapu National Park. As much as it is about light and colour of a particular place it also, I hope, speaks to the larger ambition of asking us to slow down, to live more thoughtful and measured lives. My recent path paintings expand on the idea of absorbing and taking stock of our surroundings while pictorially embracing all the complexity and nuance that these seemingly mundane landscapes present us with.
