My studio is the south and east of Australia. It’s the seaforest - a place to capture light on trees, rocks, waterways and across the skies between the sea and the mountains.
Images of the seaforest are my footprints and my visual memories of place and time.
Each image is one of my experiences, or the start of a journey. Each has given me the pleasure of a sweep of light and tone and colour that I've never imagined before as a painter and photographer. As in any journey, each of my images brings me an after-image of hope, trepidation and anticipation. Each image calls me back to the seaforest.
I think we haven't made our world ideal and it grows increasingly clouded and intangible. Journeys and art are attempts to find a way through.
Here, on the south eastern corner of the sixth continent, it's less clouded (dry humour). It's possible to restore much to its natural balance. Sharing what we express through our images and art is a step toward bringing this about.
