From the artist

A view over the Derwent from “The Lost World', a signposted spot off the Pinnacle Road to Mt Wellington; a rhythmic composition; or perhaps a symbolic form representing a family standing in theatrical tableau on the edge of a precipice? Paintings just indefatigable are, but perceptions of them can shift as easily as the weight of the viewer from right to left foot.
