From the artist

These recent paintings are a continual response and visual conversation with the natural landscape of east coast of Tasmania where I have lived and worked for the past twenty years. The landscape provides a trigger for the act of painting, the response is intuitive and upon entering this place there is a subconscious absorption and recognition of time and environment. The work strives to convey this inherent sense of the basic and expressive nature of such places.
