'Every image has a story to tell'

Flying over this great continent, I feel compelled to open the window shade and gaze with awe and curiosity at the seemingly endless landscape below. How did the first peoples see the landscapes so clearly, as if they had a birds-eye view?

 

While the landscape appears timeless, it is constantly changing, its physical elements being dissolved and sculpted by the movement of water and the abrasive power of sand and grit being tossed endlessly in the wind.

 

The air above the land is changeable too, the clouds moving across the land causing patterns of light and shade.

 

The patterns are what draw me in. The longitudinal sandhills, and the ancient shifting watercourses, the smooth meandering wanderings of liquid and red earth.

 

How can we protect and look after our unique environment?

 

As an artist, I hope to put a spotlight on the plight of our country, and the plight of all of us, if we don’t act soon. Let the natural world not just be a pretty picture on a wall for all to admire and remember what we once had, but may it exist long into the future because we came to its defence.
