Exhibition at The Main Gallery, Halifax Street, Adelaide
January 22 – February 12, 2022
This body of work started when Australia was burning and has been making its way through the upheaval and uncertainty of the pandemic.
It traces gratitude for regeneration, home, family and beauty.
Each work began with an iPad finger drawing or painting made from life. Many were made whilst hurtling along the highway in a car.
The iPad drawings are like taking notes and the finger marks embody the time spent immersed in that drawing, searching for colour or form.
Some images remain in their original state, others are re-explored as paintings.
In many of the paintings, the subject has become the finger marks themselves.
In others, quick line drawings about a loved one are filled with colour from memory and imagination.
