Oil paintings

Rainforest series:
I used to live near the rainforest in Australia and spent many hours walking through it. As well as the light, the humidity and the feeling of being enveloped by it all, the paintings explore the sense of verticality, of the vegetation trying reach the top and the rain and the sunlight trying to reach the bottom, those two verticals shifting past each other. Paintings vary in size from 2.4m to 450mm wide.

Autumn series: The fall - colour, texture, movement.
