My thoughts based on visual reality are the principle motivators for my art.
Observing the light and nature of each 'thing as it is' is the starting point of my creative effort. Abstraction is to me a form of transcendental recreation of the observed reality, always with the intent to retain the underlying existence of the original observation.
Abstraction within the bounds of reality.
My paintings are not only depicting the vast pristine environment which abounds in Australia but also the abundance of natural and man made beauty. Whilst working I am deeply aware of our societyís increasing disconnect from the environment. Nature inspires my creativity but like many of us I sense the threat arising from manís search for prosperity and a sustainable future
