North Head (2012) is a series captured at North Head Sanctuary, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. These landscapes are inspired by the great painter of light, Joseph Mallord William (JMW) Turner who has taught me to appreciate the incredible richness and variety of colours found in the softest tones, created by natural flora and fauna. With the naked eye, many of these colours are difficult to see. By decontextualising the scene, I am able to free the light and colour from their fixed and precise position, giving the work added depth, colour, energy and emotion.
