San Clemente's Icons
Introducing the completed works from the September San Clemente High School Residency.
In this collage series, my attention was on the interior style and architectural features of the historic school building, combined with the surrounding industrial landscape. I have used the archways, religious iconography and repeated patterns throughout the school's gardens, brickwork, lead lights and architraves as a framing device for the views beyond. Layered collages of watercolour, pastel and charcoal reference the working suburban neighbourhood of Mayfield and the ever-changing skyline of industry.
One of these collective collages is a gift to the school in appreciation of my time spent with the community of San Clemente.

This October, my work Mangrove Creek, a painting made during last years residency on the Hawkesbury River, has been selected for display in The Salon Des Refuses exhibition for the Plein Air Painting Prize. You can see the finalist exhibition and the rejects (history proves that these are cooler and more successful in the long run anyway) for FREE until October 28 - 2016 at Sydney's State Parliament House.
