Invaded Landscapes at Koskela


Lovers and whales (2016) oil paint, spray-paint and acrylic on wood 60 x 72cm (framed)

 

This series of paintings colourfully investigates the impact of colonisation on the Australian landscape and its peoples. Symbols of native and invasive flora and fauna function as the main signifiers within the work. By building up layers of colour and texture, layers of meaning evolve as well, creating a ‘visual wall of colour’. The semi abstract and ambiguous nature of the paintings are deliberately left open to different interpretations by the viewer.

‘By looking at the land from various visual perspectives I’ve attempted to capture some of the vastness and complexities that make this continent and its cultures so unique.’

Invaded Landscapes will be showing at Koskela in Sydney from March 12 – April 10.
