THE GOLSPIE PAINTINGS

THE GOLSPIE PAINTINGS are a series of new works made in and around a hayshed in rural NSW.


The paintings are deeply connected to the land on which they are created, with the environment as equally engaged as myself in their making. 

The works are primarily subconscious ‘action’ paintings – although they also hinge on a contemplative response, enlivened by the act of painting in a wide open landscape.

These paintings were made over two trips to Golspie, Gundungurra Country, 4 days in September and 4 days in November 2023.. 

For any enquires, please get in touch.

"I love that each painting took on its own character, poised between the environmental elements dictated by light and weather at the time and my immediate emotive response as a human making them. They became their own individul pieces of the same landscape."

GOLSPIE NIGHT PAINTINGS

THE GOLSPIE NIGHT PAINTINGS are made under the minimal light of the night sky.

 

"I love this way of painting… quickly, with heightened senses dictated by the environment. It’s raw, intensely gestural and purely autonomous – mark making that remains barely seen throughout the process."

"Painting in a studio is working solely from inside myself. Outside, I’m also working inside the subject matter. Both environments will continue to fuel each other and my practice going forward."

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. I sincerely pay my respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their cultures and customs, and to Elders past, present and emerging.
