First Prize, Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Annual Exhibition 2011
'Telling you the story of my life', collage and acrylic on paper, 92 x 133 cm
Inspired by the work of Romare Bearden, this image developed after seeing an old friend again after thirty years. It was surreal trying to summarise our lives. Aiming for a mood of crumpled reflection, I tore up photos of my studio, old paintings and a page from my 1982 diary.
Highly Commended, Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Annual Exhibition 2011
'Fay, one autumn day', acrylic and ink on canvas. 61 x 122 cm
This painting was completed during a morning while the life model, Fay, moved to music. I tried to capture her flexibility, grace and movement, while simultaneously developing an abstract composition that worked in its own right. The whole experience actually felt like a meditation - just being in the moment.
