These paintings are disjointed, emotional responses to the idea of place. Fragments of places, symbols floating in fields of seductive colour and texture. When I think of place I don’t see a clear picture, it’s more like elements of different places and feelings. Blurs of the bark that you touched at a picnic, how a lagoon looked under moonlight when wading through with a dolphin torch trying to catch prawns, the root that you stubbed your toe on coming back from the beach barefoot. What I’ve tried to capture in these pictures is more of a vibe than anything solid, defined or overly literal. It’s the feeling that these places bring up, there’s a potency to these places in our consciousness, and what I’m interested in is the emotion we attach to them.

Traditional landscapes are based the past, a snapshot of a place at a point in time. It’s an outdated way of working, hanging on to the past. What I’m trying to capture is the feeling that places evoke, the condition of now and the possibilities of what they could become. It’s a non-linear way of thinking about places and our connection to them.
