Coloured Pencil on pastel board
I didn’t make the final list for this year’s Glover Prize, but I thought I would post today and tomorrow, photos of the two works that I submitted along with their respective artist’s statements.
An extraordinary variety of rocks can be found along the northern Tasmanian coastline. Some are rich in texture while others feature strong, abstract patterns.
There is a delightful contrast between visually ‘active and passive’ rocks.
Driftwood pieces break the rock mass, adding a linear quality and rhythm to the composition.
Although noted for its outstanding examples of realism, Nature has also mastered the principles of abstraction.
