The Myopic Landscapes paintings are rich in colours and highly textured in style; it's impossible to fully represent them on a computer screen, especially with significant variation in display between types of monitors.

The best way to experience the paintings is viewing them on exhibition or at commercial galleries.

Latest Work

Since the Young Volcanic Landscapes Exhibition, I have been uncertain as to what to do next or whether producing a new series of paintings for a solo exhibition is really economically (or artistically) viable under the current climate. So I took a 6 month sabbatical from painting and worked on some renovations.

My local gallery, Artists on Parade in Tumbarumba, planed for an exhibition in October with the theme "Mountains" where entrants were all provided with a standard canvas (600x400mm) to submit their work on. Now I work on MDF board so I don't usually enter these competitions, but this time, without any long-term plans, I thought I would produce "pseudo-canvases" using MDF sheets and softwood backing framework. The scenes painted come from one of my favourite locations in Kosciuszko NP, Nth Ramshead, where the landscape has been curved by old glacial activity and current alpine conditions.

Other works from revisited sites have since been produced

These paintings are smaller than what I usually produce plus they will be sold unframed.
