‘Near Death’ investigates the structural beauty of dying botanical specimens. These objects are very familiar to the point of iconic in their living state. But as death nears, their structural complexity and beauty is accentuated.

‘Imagined Landscapes’ explores further the notion of landscape. I attempt to create landscapes in my studio, manipulating my palette of variables – light, shadow, form. While these ‘Imagined Landscapes’ are devoid of specific place, they possess the familiarity and soul of somewhere I feel I have been.

I produced this book after a solo exhibition at Anita Traverso Gallery, Melbourne, September 2012.
