This body of work directly references memories and recollections of gazing endlessly out of the passenger window on road trips throughout parts of Western Queensland and Australia which seemingly blur into one continuous panorama. Although central themes of the landscape do not appear to change significantly, it is my perception of place through a private lens which shifts, as well as the gradual change the landscape generates through the shifting environments concerned. Landscape remains my touchstone for conveying ideas of place. Experiencing the Australian landscape, through the act of painting, allows for a manifestation of new encounters and reconnection in the anticipation of a deeper understanding of the ever-changing world around me.

‘If the landscape changes, then I don’t know who I am either. The landscape is a refracted autobiography. As it disappears you lose your sense of self.’  (Iain Sinclair b.1943 )
