Edges

Edges , 2006. Oil and enamel on canvas, 41 x 31 cm. Purchased by Mr Frank Turner, the then director of Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, former provost and John Hay Whitney Professor of History at Yale University. He bought two of my works following a trip to Australia from Harris Courtin Gallery, Sydney. In the following years we were in occasional email contact which was wonderful.

Studio

The studio at Yarra Bend Gallery Yarra Bend Gallery Studio Red and White Lines, 2015, oil and enamel on canvas, 137 x 122 cm. Red and White Lines, 2015 is a painting more directly linked to notions of landscape while still remaining abstract. A painting can take a number of months to complete. The final layer affect of this painting was created using a technique known as wet into wet where the top layer of marks are dragged through the semi-dry under painting. It creates an immediacy and differing brush weights which are hard to achieve another way. This work is available at Yarra Bend Gallery.
