South East Queensland's waterways offer so many opportunities for artists and the Brisbane River is no exception. "Brisbane River Moorings" was inspired by a photograph I took back in 2006 on an early morning walk with my brother, John. Central to our conversation was the discussion of how beautiful the Brisbane River is. I drew on that thought while I constructed this scene. The image is a balance of the calmness of the water, the electricity of the reflections of the commercial buildings and the contrast with the leisure craft bobbing on the water. I know that I've probably painted someone's home on the water - what a place to live!
I am very pleased to announce that I have recently become the Artist-in-Residence at De Rucci, 977A Ann Street, Fortitude Valley, Qld 4006 (Ph: 07 3252 8388). I'm so thrilled to have a location that is so central to showcase my works.
The team at De Rucci are excited to have me there too. When you go there, you'll see why. My work sits so well in this environment!
I'm busy organising an official launch in the coming weeks - stay tuned...
Here are the works which are there at the moment but there more coming! De Rucci - Artist in Residence
