Earthskins

Earthskins continues my art practice of painting outdoors, on the ground, under the sky exploring a ‘collaboration’ of sorts between materials, the ground, the weather and my creative process.

These paintings were made following a recent road trip to Central Australia, a response to the infinite horizon, the vast skyscapes, the experience of clear light and a heightened awareness of colour.
