'Once, Upon a Canvas Wall' - Recent Work
My work space for many years has been a strapper's cottage amongst racing stables on Sydney’s urban fringes. Built from a demolished racetrack building during the depression, it is lined throughout with variously patterned, pressed metal sheeting. In this series I have used these patterns as a common perspective and prism through which this work is visualized and constructed: As these patterns form the background while I work, so they are the background of the work.
Any narrative(s) that the viewer may draw from the images remain, as always, the property of the viewer. I just make the pictures!
