Garden City

These post-lockdown paintings celebrate a return to the world. Richly textured, they incorporate materials including garden soil, beach sand, photographs of city buildings and Melbourne's Botanic Gardens, and news clippings of current events. Textures of place, time and memory reflect the depth of experience of both sitter and artist. The focus shifts to pleasure in the physical process of painting, the joy of handling materials such as soil and sand.
