Four of my etchings including two from my most recent series Distance of Longing are currently on exhibition at Port Jackson Press in their Summer Salon exhibition, December 1st - January 30th 2019. My prints are in great company with new works by their stable of talented artists. You can find the list of my works here. If you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces you will find their gallery manager Laura to be wonderfully helpful.
I really love how the etchings they selected show the development of my landscape work over recent years. The earliest piece Suburban Pastoral 3 depicts suburbia as the intersection of constructed and natural space, a frontier. Ghost Gum Woods moves into a true wilderness space with sinuous gums recalling the works of Sydney Long and John Glover. Distance of Longing (allure) and (disquiet) take the Australian wilderness to a sublime place of dreaming and horror. Imposing monumental mountains in the distance invoking fantasy and desire reflecting the subjective and constructed nature of landscape art.
