Memento

12 Oct 2017 – 11 Nov 2017
Opening: 6-8pm, Friday 13 October

 

Memento is an exhibition of paintings inspired by my recent experiences living in Belgium for a year, soaking up Flemish art, the landscape and the northern light. Some of the paintings are based on European urban environments, connecting directly to other works that depict my suburban environment here in Melbourne.

As Dr Jessica Neath recently wrote about my work, ‘these are the moments glimpsed at twilight on the way home from work, peering out the window of a moving car or train, or walking to the local park. For all the stasis of these images, the rectangular buildings and vertical power poles, there is a sense of mobility, of passing through.’

Whilst there is a transitory nature to the imagery, caught in the midst of busy family life, my detailed oil paintings on copper and linen are about capturing and cherishing these small, quiet moments of beauty in our everyday lives.
