Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing
The human subject in states of spiritual exaltation, expansion and contraction continues to be the primary object of fascination in my work.
Selected as a finalist in the Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing 2017, the derelict, filthy, in some places, worn bare figure in ‘Far from Self’ represents the contracted state of consciousness – alienation from Self. Orange and black thread divide the foreground of the picture plane drawing attention to the horizon line – a pictorial convention used to describe the notion of distance. The hulking figure move determinedly onwards.
The finalists’ exhibition runs from 4 to 26 August at Jugglers Art Space Inc.
Open studio Sunday 28 May 2017 at 3pm. Come and meet the madman behind the drawings, have a cuppa (I have an urn!) and buy direct from the studio.

A3 responses to the current state of the world.
OPENING NIGHT: 7-10pm Saturday 4 March 2017
Exhibition continues until Tuesday 14 March 2017 @ Jugglers Art Space Inc.
Go see how some people make sense of a crazy, mixed up world by confining their attention to A3 size rectangles!
