"Belonging" Part 1 - My Exhibtion of new landscapes

I am really pleased with my new series of landscapes. The title of the show, "Belonging" does not have any deep meaning. It simply indicates that I paint landscape to which I feel a strong sense of belonging, being part of it, standing in the vastness of my cathedral and paying homage to its beauty and harshness - the tension of opposites.

I have in this series brought together all that I have learnt and experienced in my practice over the past eight years. The paintings areheavily textured with collaged papers and textural pastes, as well as sand and stones. They are sealed with many coats of glues, gesso and acrylic medium to build a high profile on the canvas. They are painted in my bright pallette with wash over wash, building a jewel-like glow of acylic paints and finished with a fine, soft glaze of oil paint that emphasises the texture of the work.

The exhibition will run at Percolator Gallery, 134 Latrobe Tce, Paddington from 24th August until 6th September and wil be open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30am until 4:30pm.

I hope you can come long to have a look at the show. Contact me on

"Belonging" Part 2 - New Landscapes 2010

At my show, entitled "Belonging", at Percolator Gallery from 24th August until 6th September, you will see the following works, heavily textured, brightly coloured, and, I think, much more "me". Friends who have seen the work have expressed their pleasure in seeing the merge of my use of various media over the past eight years. You are welcome to come to the opening night on 27th August at 5:30pm. See details at end of this section. Or visit the show at any time.
Everyone coming to the show will receive an original art card measuring 3.5 by 2.5 inches which will be a small version of my landscapes suing collage and modelling pastes to create texture, painted in acrylics and covered with a fine glaze of oil paint.
