My first painting of 2018 is an addition to my Elevation Series that I’ve called, Love Over Gold. This piece features the amazing Pilbara region of the West Australian coast.
I have a fascination for the colours of this region where the red ochre sands meet the tropical turquoise waters – embodying the raw and harsh Australian landscape. We’re lucky enough to live in a time where we are able to view the Earth from an elevated perspective that inspires me as an artist.
I’m proud to have Love Over Gold as my entry into the 2018 Bluethumb Art Prize.
These detailed scenes are very intensive and require a lot of patience and attention to detail – including new techniques that I’ve developed since beginning the Elevation Series.
