"Disconnected" exhibition at Brenda May Gallery Sydney 25 February to 22 March 2014

My latest work can be seen at Brenda May Gallery Sydney in my solo show Disconnected.

All is always now2014
il on linen 
122 x 152cm 
My work derives itself from my personal experiences and observations as a woman in Contemporary Australia. I have chosen the filmatic stage to portray my characters, making my own version of Noir - my Femme Noir. The characters in my paintings often appear disassociated in their environments; there in physicality but removed and mentally detached, existing in their own worlds. Women stare into space, involved in their private lives, housed in their own environments. Here there are pristine interiors, with patterned walls and floors, whilst the shadows play with the psychological presence of people inhabiting the scenes.

The Surgeon 2013
Oil on Linen

Have been working on this portrait of my Great Uncle Dr Donald Beard for quite awhile now in between my other commitments.  Have decided say it is finished eventhough I could keep working on is always difficult to know when to stop...but stop I have. The image will be in the forthcoming publication from Wakefield Press called the 'The Diggers Doctor' due to be released April 2014. At this stage there will be a launch of the book by General Peter Cosgrove at SA Government House, which is all very exciting!
