Artist Statement

Fire and Rain Series

This series consists of two complementary groups of paintings based on the elements fire and rain. Fire and rain are both archetypal elements, fundamental to our existence. The works explore the relationship these elements have with our psyche.

The sensual quality of rain connects us with the earth. Cold and wet, it surrounds our skin and stimulates our senses. It sustains and nourishes, cleanses and renews. The sound of rain is like white noise: it envelops us in a protective mantle. Fire has the power to illuminate, to transform and reinvent our experiences. It carries great symbolic meaning. Fire is a manifestation of the magical within the physical world.

I developed the idea of the rain series during a wet holiday at Arrawarra Beach, surrounded by estuaries and swamps. After days shut off from the world by torrential rain, I observed the landscape take on a unique quality: of muted tones and swirling reflections. Figures seemed to float dreamlike in an amorphous grey world without point of reference, suspended between the physical world and imagined places.

The context for the “fire” paintings is urban; the constructed world. The landscapes are warm, bathed in soft evening light, yet there are powerful and unsettling forces about. A wind storm is building. Trees are bending and buildings are being inextricably drawn into a vortex of light. Telegraph poles and trees are burning spontaneously. There is a sense of mystery and expectation as we journey from the real into the imagined.
