Zoom into this piece as it is highly detailed:  The blue is comprised of many small, hand painted dots, the black lines also hand painted.  The painting is finished with an isolation coat and varnish. 

Waugal refers an indigenous Australian story of a life-giving water serpent native to the region around Perth. As the story is told, the Waugal slivered through the region shaping its geography. Upon creating the Swan River, the Waugal rested beside it, presumably forever. Beautifully, this location is also the epicenter of Greater Perth, west Australia's only major urban sprawl. 

Upon learning about the Waugal I was struck by the juxtaposition of a "life giving serpent" and the appearance of the glowing urban organism. Perhaps the Waugal woke up...

This city does not represent a real location. It is an imagined place, a biologist’s field drawing, city as organism. 

The blue water is comprised of several detailed blue dots. The painting has an isolation coat and varnish.

I am a scientist and artist based in Perth, Australia. My hand-painted, abstract cities represent the Urban Organism, a biological interpretation of urbanisation. My cities are imagined. If a real location is painted, it is an idealised vision of the future, a case study in urbanisation. The pieces featured here do not represent my full body of work. You're seeing archival artwork only.
