Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

A few years ago I was standing next to my partner in a gallery in Adelaide, in front of a very large contemporary aboriginal painting, which blended the traditions of aboriginal painting with something more straightforwardly artistic. He began to sway. And I thought "that's interesting... I wonder if I could make him fall over". And so began a process of exploration of how the combination of colours and textures within the simplest two dimensional shapes (a rectangle of canvas and a lot of smaller circles) could create a three dimensional space to boggle the eyes and confuse the brain.
