About the event

I have always been close to Sydney harbour or Bondi where there are swarms of people enjoying  warm weather. My latest paintings were inspired by the latest holiday to Palm Springs in 2019. It made me realise the beauty in isolation. The sun creating moody lights on the architecture and  landscapes, people hiding inside air-conditioned mansions from sweltering heat. Everything seemed  simple, in a complicated way. And when I arrived back to Sydney I couldn’t wait to start painting the  colours and images of people I encountered there. Little did I know more isolation was to come. I  Paint with simple thick brush strokes and muted soft colours, it gives me space to detail a focal point  of the painting. My aim is to make the complicated simple. My background in graphic art and fashion  has led me to keep the edges, shadows and shapes simple and distinct, whilst keeping a thick  painterly style to make it analogue and not digital.
