I am currently working on A Little Further North, a group show at Milton House Gallery in Mackay Queensland with Ron McBurney, Tim Allen, Steve Lopes and Chris Langlois. This show has been moved to early next year due to lockdowns. I’m also in a group show at BAAM Moree in January and another group show at the Braemar Gallery Springwood next year.
Roads to Berry exhibition ran 15th to 25th April 2021
I produced a new series of landscape paintings loosely based on The Road to Berry, a painting made by Australian painter Lloyd Rees in 1947. My Roads to Berry series features the many roads and images from the coastline around and leading to the Gerringong and Berry townships on the NSW south coast. The exhibition of this work was at Project Gallery 90 in Oxford Street Paddington. See more information about the Roads to Berry exhibition on my Blog page and photographs of the artworks on my Subjects page.
I had an exhibition called Regenerate of the 12 bushfire recovering tree portraits I’d worked on during the COVID19 lock down at the Project Gallery 90 Annex. These works appear in the New Work section of this website. They are still available at Project Gallery 90
The Memory of Trees- 2020
My Pre-COVID19 two person exhibition was titled The Memory of Trees with Queensland artist Ron McBurney. My work featured a series of paintings based on views of forests at Project Gallery 90 in Paddington, NSW from 20th February to 5th March 2020. Many of my works from this show and others are still available from Project Gallery 90 website.
About the Artist
I am a Sydney based contemporary landscape painter living in the Blue Mountains. The paintings are made using a variety of techniques and concerns usually found in Realism, Expressionism, 19th Century New World Romanticism, Abstract Expressionism and even Pop . I’ve been exhibiting my paintings and other artworks professionally since 1981 in Australia and elsewhere. I have also worked as an academic in universities and art colleges in Australia and the UK and curated exhibitions. I’ve been in many groups shows and held 19 solo exhibitions of my paintings. My work is in many collections both public and private in Australia as well as overseas.
