When travelling through the flat, monotonous country of inland Australia, agricultural and mining structures are often visible for a considerable distance, rising like giant sculptures out of a flat plain: three-dimensional forms intersecting horizontal lines.

These structures form the basis of Curtis' latest exhibition - a continuation of past explorations. On an abstract level, I continue to use touches of red and yellow which vibrate with more energy when surrounded by subtle browns and greys, rather than combined with other strong colours, adding to the intersection with the natural world.
