Edwina Corlette Gallery, Brisbane. February 2017.
Overnight is a collection of paintings recalling an impromptu overnight trip to Pantai Kerachut, a beach on Penang Island, Malaysia.
Situated in the Penang National Park, the scenery wasn’t particularly memorable however an interesting series of events ensured this trip has remained in my mind. After losing my photos of that time, painting became a kind of meditative act of recalling my experiences of this place, articulating them through colour. Intuitive, but sometimes awkward line, composition and colour, express the awkwardness and those experiences of the unknown that often occur when in a new place.
