My work continues to explore the Still Life and its place in contemporary Australian painting. I focus in particular on the sort of objects that might be found in the home. Sometimes this is because they are interesting in their own right, and other times it is because these objects act as symbols that suggest more ambiguous or contradictory meanings. Either way, there are rich traditions to build upon.
In this current series of work I look at the way the miscellany of things found in the household environment can comment on everyday life in Australia, from the small triumphs and tragedies, to all the ordinariness that lies somewhere in between.
