Through a kind of surreal anamorphosis, these paintings reflect our current political reality to expose its hidden side – dreams, desires, hallucination. Thin washes of paint evoke a sense of environmental forecasts – in particular, global warming. Sole figures enact activities in largely uninhabited landscapes; trees morph while nature eerily hangs in strange balance against potential collapse. Many of these works were painted during an Australia Council residency at the Cité Internationale, Paris.
