|NEWSLETTER||FEBRUARY 2012 ISSUE|
I am continuing to work full time towards concurrent exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne opening in May 2012. These will be at Charles Hewitt Gallery in Sydney opening Thurs 3rd May 6 – 8 pm and Catherine Asquith Gallery in Melbourne opening May 5th from 2 – 4 pm. Both these exhibitions will remain on view until May 19th.
For these works I have drawn inspiration from a recent road trip through southern NSW and western Victoria where I visited farms and towns in the areas and much of the new work has it’s origins in my observations of the farm landscapes of these areas.
I was impressed by a survey exhibition of William Delafield Cook paintings shown at Tarra Warra Museum of Art near Healsville Victoria, where an opening of new works by Sam Leach occurred on the day I was there. Both of these shows were influential on the approach to my current art practice.
