From the artist

This painting represents a two-way journey. A fracture, a split and the end of a relationship nearly two decades long. Each person must find their own path. There are obstacles in the way. The person I considered to be my ‘other half’ takes a nightly journey like this amongst the darkness and the beauty of the Tasmanian landscape. This painting of Huon River is symbolic of his journey and how I have interpreted it. The sky is mirrored in the river. Can one exist without the other? We don’t know what’s around the corner. It is both frightening and beautiful to travel alone.
