Nest

19 Jun 2014 - 8 Jul 2014
Exhibited at Beaver Galleries, Canberra

These paintings are driven by my intimate relationship to the landscape of southern Tasmania, the mountains, button grass plains, the understory of small plants and leaf litter and also the wild weather that shapes the landscape. To me the landscape represents a fragile habitat for native species. The dense weave of grasses molded and pressed into shapes by small bodies of marsupials or birds or the way sticks and twigs are pushed into hollows on the ground by the wind and rain creates patterns suggestive of nests. This notional nest encloses, wraps and protects.
