This series of oil paintings and ceramic sculptures intend to evoke the distinct energetic qualities of Lord Howe’s sub-tropical volcanic landscape. The stylised imagery of endemic flora sprawling across the panels suggests the experience of nature as an overwhelming life force, while the graduated colours help elicit a dreamy ambience.
In contrast to the wooden panels that lightly float off the wall, the ceramic sculptures provide a counterpoint of solidity and weight. They maintain the indistinct otherworldliness through the use of dappled glazes.
