Living from the Land
I specialise in linocut and wood engraved work, and tend towards producing ugly stories for beautiful people or, as one critic put it, ‘sometimes wry observations of the contemporary Australia cultural condition’. My work is held in collections in Australia and overseas, some of which are held in great esteem. I try to produce work that is both aesthetically reconciled and also has a slightly deeper lever of discourse than the usual vacuous work that floods the mainstream art world. I don’t cater to the blue rinse set but, as I get older, I may give up on the struggle of explaining what I see and just tell the same story that most people seem to want to hear.
