Bush Cove

The interplay of water in landscape continues to inspire, and the south coastal area of NSW has been a focus in this new body of work; providing a welcome retreat into a beautiful natural environment
Isolation in this instance was not a problem.

In this new series water catches light or is often still. At times, marks left in sand trace the passage of water around rocks. Eroded rocks are suggested in textured shapes. Vertical textured shapes of trees are fragmented, alluding to glimpses of bush.  Other landscape elements are re-aligned as abstract shapes. This abstraction of solid landscape form aims to explain the effect of bush, beach, and creek on the senses: sanctuaries teeming with birdcall, light and peace.
