Bus Stop On The New Estate

Description : Conceptually, Bus Stop on the New Estate appears to me as a seesaw; a balancing act between the dark detail of the seated figure and the bright open nothingness of the yet to be built housing estate. The bus stop sign and the top represent the full potential of what is yet to be realised. It's a bold striking work with lots of layers and textures. It was inspired by a new housing estate being built in the hinterland near where I live. The land had all been cleared of trees and all the infrastructure was being laid - roads, pipes, electricity etc but there were no houses or parks, just a bus stop for all the people who didn't live there yet!It seemed a funny thing to put in first. The sides are painted, it's varnished and ready to hang with wire across the back. Signed on the front, varnished and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Currently live and work on the Gold Coast, Queensland. I am a self-taught artist and have been developing my skills for most of my life. With marriage and 2 children came the development of a small business that focused on reporoductions of my original works. It was a fully in-house handcrafted product, a commercial venture that had good success and eventually needed a lot of outsourcing. I closed it in 2012 mainly because I just wanted to paint not run a fully fledged product based business. In 2013 I began to emerge from the studio by entering local art competitions and was invited in 2015 by Hillier and Skuse Gallery to exhibit my work.

I concentrate mainly on large scale landscapes using imagery drawn from personal experience, childhood memories right through to current observations of everyday life. A large part of my creative expression involves telling a story. My process often starts with asking myself 'where would I like to be today? And what story do I want to tell?' It's usually a wide open space so I can have a look around to see what I want to say. The idea often unfolds as I go, the placing of objects determines the next, guided by an overall mood, story and colour scheme. I can surround myself with things I find interesting and leave out all the clutter that would probably be there in real life. I usually start with the darkest tones moving forward to the lightest so the finished piece is something that is familiar but a the same time a little unusual. Each painting takes many weeks to complete as I construct each landscape from scratch - the perspective, the scale, light souces and shadows. All my works are unique and individual and I do not release prints so the integrity of each piece is preserved.
