My next exhibition will be held at Cambridge Studio Gallery in Collingwood, Melbourne. There will be an official opening on Sunday the 12th in the afternoon from 2pm where you can come and view the work, enjoy a drink and have a chat to me.
This collection of work is inspired by the Upper Yarra River catchment area. The Yarra River is an icon of Melbourne, it winds it's way through the city and is often described as disgusting, dirty and poisoned. However if you travel just over an hour our of the city and towards the Yarra Valley and entirety different picture is shown. Up here the river is clean, picturesque and beautiful. This is the Yarra that i want people to see and enjoy.
Now, of course I am not trying to make a political statement about pollution, I'm just hoping to give you something beautiful to look at and to help bring the outside in. I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of creating a series of works focusing on the beauty of the river. As well as working through the challenges of blending more traditional landscape compositions with my more stylized expressive style of painting. I hope you will join me on the 12th.
