This print is about the role surfing as a sub-culture plays in my life. I consider my connection to this culture to be a significant part of my identity. In recent years surf culture has been commodified by the popularity of the ‘surfing style’ of the clothing industry. This has blurred the line between those who belong to the sub-culture through shared experiences and those who only wear the style.

Approximately 80 years ago 500 pine trees were planted at the foot of Mt Arapiles in Western Victoria. Today 81 remain standing in the camping ground affectionately known as ‘the pines’. Drought and trampled roots from thousands of campers have ensured their slow and inevitable death. All too soon the memories we have of the shade and community they provided will only remain in stories which begin: I remember when…

This print is one of a series of single-figure images that I have sourced primarily from the sketchbooks that I use to flesh out the ‘characters’ in my paintings. I have been drawn to the suspended figure by the way in which it embodies a sense of liberation on one hand, but also a great vulnerability on the other.

As a constant observer of the natural world, I am constantly observing and drawing trees. While I never intend to anthropomorphise objects in nature, I often see trees as having strong ‘characters’. As I was looking through my journal recently I noticed a page where I had drawn a group of trees standing in a line. This immediately gave me the idea for my lithograph Family Tree.

This image references an introduced plant species, which is often the first to take hold in a native area that has been disturbed. There is a dynamic balance to be found in such ecological systems, which are increasingly being altered by shifting climatic patterns and environmental changes.

Etching, screenprint and hand colouring

The Best in Show is a satirical reflection of the human psychology seen in these humble budgies. As in the nature of competition, the budgies must ‘strut their stuff’, rigorously examined and compared by each minute imperfection. Should we embrace these so-called flaws and allow their natural beauty to be in the ‘eye of the beholder’?
