I have selected this exhibition from recent major works in my studio. These works are based upon my travels and are observations of memorable moments and places, including visits to artists’ studios and environments. These imagined images have been developed through sketches, memories and observations. They are the opposite of photographic portrayals or picture-postcards. They are closer to personal recollections. Included in this body of work are concepts developed in Australia (Sydney, Brisbane and beyond) and internationally (Paris, Southern France, London, Marrakech and California). This exhibition is a celebration of the joie-de-vivre felt when assimilating these new experiences.
