Art, Identity & Place

How wild places, deep time and archaeology inform my contemporary art process

Lake Mungo Overview

IMG_5807.jpgA radical rearrangement as I decided I didn’t like Red Earth Trajectory at Mungo 2 so it I turned it into a horizontal format and turned it upside down. I returned to my first idea about how to indicated to the viewer a state of mind where elements, that stayed in my mind as I left that vicinity and returned to my studio, could find expression as a memory of the essential aspects of the landform.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
