My landscapes have always been a fantasy space for me, only loosely based in truth. My core sensibility investigates Australian natives, Movement, Colour and to a certain extent has a sartorial element. I’m fascinated with the idea of the Sublime in art and literature and a certain theatricality along those lines seems to linger in my work. I would like to think my paintings possess their own emotion, their own truth, and that each one preserves space for individual interpretation.

Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime (Immanuel Kant ) held that there were three kinds -  the noble , the splendid and the terrifying.

In his Critique of Judgment (1790),[14]Kant distinguishes between the "remarkable differences" of the Beautiful and the Sublime, noting that beauty "is connected with the form of the object", having "boundaries", while the sublime "is to be found in a formless object", represented by a "boundlessness"

I seek to reference both of these, the ‘boundaries’ of the object through Still Life and the ‘boundlessness’ of my more immersive bushland paintings. I am to make the viewer feel part of nature, immersed in rather than separate.
