Further information

This landscape is a reflection of everyday life. It depicts a walk that I took to the Art Gallery of New South Wales with my son. It had just stopped raining and the sun was reflecting on the wet trees and pathway, creating a silvery light.

I enjoyed experimenting with collage to produce this work. It is one of the more abstract landscapes I have produced. It felt free from formal constraints. I worked quickly and intensely on each assembled piece. Applying thin acrylic washes to raw plywood added an element of unpredictability and immediacy, like working in a sketchpad.
