The Reef has been an area of artistic interest since I began painting, appearing as a follow on to my first exhibition, back in 2000 on Oceanic Waters.
Now in front of the fans and coolers, new things are happening to my art. I am turning to assemblage or smaller sculptural forms as I think my way through a base for an exhibition that I am putting together to comment on the impending environmental disaster of our own Great Barrier Reef, the largest living organism on Earth. I do not have a venue or time planned as I do not not want to have pressure on my 'play". I am enjoying this freedom to work, and I hope that it will eventually show in the result.
The beginning of play with the humble peg!
A world of wonder at risk!..What a privilege for Australia, to have this on the doorsteps. A responsibility, not to be taken lightly!
