My current body of work, 'A Painted Journey', is increasingly 'secretive' - the hideout of Captain Thunderbolt is receding more and more into the landscape, a part of the mythology surrounding Thunderbolts exploits.
Legend and fact entwine, romanticising the nature of the man as bushranger... the image of Captain Thunderbolt as a champion of the poor, almost a ‘Robin Hood’ figure, re-interprets some of his activities as he becomes known as the ‘Gentleman Bushranger’.
