In April 2017 I was part of a group exhibition of twenty two artists from ArtHouse Gallery, Sydney. The show investiagted works on paper, paper as a fertile contemporary medium that allows for experimentation.
The drawings I contributed to the show were mixed media on sheets of Ingres paper, using oil stick, acrylic, ink, crayon and pencil. I found drawing with this range of materials a fun experience, and hope to retransfer some of this energy and freedom to my paintings, also focusing on the subject of the river in the landscape.
