Statement

My painting practice realises a cross-cultural/cross-disciplinary focus, incorporating cultural forms from both my western and Australian indigenous traditions. I am interested in how order and randomness, chance and the arbitrary can play out in painting, carried by a conversation between relationships of colour and space. My paintings are responses to the phenomenological experience of place and its cultural forms, spaces of immediacy and improvisation. Manipulating paint and colour, constructing and re-constructing, makes for the experience of the unexpected, a sense of the unfinished at the end stage. The viewer can add her own perceptions to the experience.
