Artist Statement

 

The exhibition at Gecko Studio Gallery at Fish Creek is titled Transmitter. That is the role of the artist, to absorb, consider then to “transmit” values and ideas to the receiver/viewer. Without a receiver/viewer even the best art is like a phone off the hook, just about useless.

My prints, drawings, paintings and sculpture come from the sea, the costal bush and the night sky. Birds and flying things, man-made structures and reflections upon the nature of life all appear in my work.

The exhibition is to be opened by Stuart Purves AM of Australian Galleries and Rob Haysom, the author of Thames and Hudson Serious Play, The art of Kevin Mortensen which will be launched at the opening at 2pm Sunday the 17th of January.
