    An Uncertain Stillness


    Exhibition dates: 9 - 27 October 2019
    Opening: Saturday 12 October, 5 -7pm

    An Uncertain Stillness  -  Artist Statement


    These paintings explore a subtly abstracted world; structured lines and shapes in combination with bold colours emphasise the symbolic nature of our surroundings. Fixed in late afternoon light, deepened colours and long shadows stretch across paddocks, manicured lawns and trimmed hedges, sharply articulating each scene.

    There is a sense of disquiet in these works, seeking to capture the unsettled feeling of being on the verge of recalling an elusive half-remembered dream.

    Absent of people, these works wait for the actors to take their places, for a telling of stories that exist but have not yet been written. They are sets cleared of all but the essential elements, inviting the viewer to contribute to the tale.

    A path or road invites the viewer to explore that created space, with light and shadow and a sense of possibility. Landscapes, both urban and natural, can be fleeting and transient yet imbued with soul.
