The Darkness That Lies Within – Cape Grim

I try to place myself in areas, both physically and spiritually, that ask questions about identity, isolation and mortality. Cape Grim is a site that I have returned to many times. The dark beauty that surrounds this area has both a disturbing and magnetic energy to it. Reading about the history of this area and drawing from this area has been the platform for the emotive response within my painting.
