the promised land (2023)
I still marvel at this painting because it unfolded with such ease, and in such an unusual palette of colours! The softness of the scene surprised me – I am accustomed to being drawn to use bolder tones – and I found myself yearning to be at the foot of those hills.
Even though there is warmth and light surrounding the viewer’s position in the painting, I am dreaming of finding a way across the lake to see what is on the other side. The hills feel like they could be from a Fairy-tale, and their soft folds and undulations promise security and peace alongside adventure.
Part of my solo exhibition 'returning to the source' at Wallace Gallery, Morrinsville during March 2023.
