Riverlets in the Creek Bed. 1200 x1240mm OIL ON CANVAS $5000.00
My trip to the Pilbara area in Western Australia allowed me to experience the remoteness of this vast land. Spending days just in one dry riverbed alone became a vision quest and with it a freedom I had never experienced before. Painting on site, on the ground with no restrictions was completely liberating.
I was not sure how this painting would end up but what emerged for was the understanding that this land while seemingly uninhabited was teeming with life. I would not presume to have knowledge of this ancient land nor the Indigenous Culture inhabiting it for more than 30,000 years, but I felt and experienced something in the riverbed. I wanted to paint the earthy nature of the landscape but left myself open to what would come.
