The Recovery is a painting inspired by the Blue Mountains NSW landscape that had been subjected to a process known as controlled back-burning. (The aim is to prevent extensive damage from a potential bush fire by strategically burning off sections). I stumbled across the bush in this state and couldn't believe there was such beauty in such tragedy. A series of paintings and drawings followed. I chose oil paint as it is my favourite medium that I feel confident and comfortable to use well. I chose the striking colours of black and red to create drama and to grab the attention of the viewer.
Handpicked to show at The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art in Sydney
