The old fence line
This work is inspired by my deep attachment to the land and the joy experienced while horse trail riding over paddocks and through tracks in the adjacent bushland. I never cease to be amazed by the dynamic beauty and structure of the natural landscape. The palette and composition of this work are informed by a mix of direct observation, reference photographs I have taken over the years, and memories of the specific landmarks depicted. Old fence lines have always fascinated me as they depict the shifting boundaries both of time and purpose together with the natural weathering of the land and of the posts and wire as the decades pass.
