NEW LANDSCAPES 2017
"the text that nature renders"
This is a quote from the diaries of Ernest Shackleton. He was describing the Antarctic landscape but for me, this description is equally apt for the channel country down to lake Eyre, which this series is based on. I have, for the first time, achieved a series of work which abstracts my beloved landscape while conveying its beauty and mystery.
WENLOCK RIVER PROJECT
The Wenlock River is a sanctuary for ecological diversity and wildlife and landscape lovers. The River forms the southern border of the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve on Cape York.
(SHOWING AT TEXAS (QLD) ART GALLERY IN JANUARY 2018)
In 2015, a group of painters and photographers embarked on an artist camp to Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, Cape York. After a week of creativity immersed amidst a wide range of diverse landscapes, The Wenlock River Project was born.

STEVE IRWIN WILDLIFE RESERVE
The Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) is a wetland conservation property and a tribute to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.
The 135,000 ha property, in Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula, is home to a set of important spring fed wetlands which provide a critical water source to threatened habitat, provide permanent flow of water to the Wenlock River, and is home to rare and vulnerable plants and wildlife.
