This painting is a consequence of my attempts to find that vaporous something, that quiet, that Beauty: a subliminal moment where the corporeal and the celestial converge. Of my travels through the Cradle Mountain/ Lake St Clair Heritage Area, the image is concerned with the hidden, the unknown – the feel of the moment rather than the form through time.
