The Unyielding Principle
Humans intrinsically find our natural environment to be especially appealing and beautiful. Throughout 2018-19, my iPhone photo gallery had become filled with sunsets, harbour views and tree canopies as a result of numerous bush-walks through Gore Cove Reserve. For my Body of Work, I sought simply to capture the aesthetic of these photos I had taken. My paintings were influenced by Australian Impressionist techniques which emphasised colour and light, and also experimented with non-conventional cropping of the canvas.
