With Norbert Szűk, the organizer of the Novakfalva Residency...
Today I leave behind Győr, the little Baroque town in North-Western Hungary that has been my home for over a year. I venture on to the capital, then Turkey, then Italy, before finally making my way home to sunny summery Sydney in Australia.
During the next month I doubt I'll be able to update frequently. But I will be in a gorgeous group show in Australia in mid October, so stay tuned for more details!
Between the 4th and 18th of September I am one of
the invited artists participating in the Novák-falva International Art
Residency in Hungary. With artists from South Africa, Himalaya’s in India,
and Switzerland amongst others (I represent Australia) this is the fourth (and
last) residency to close my year and a half spent in Europe.
This time I veered away from my usual watercolours on paper, and am instead
working with acrylic on canvas. I was still determined to achieve the same
transparent layers I so love, with a very limited palette.
Here are some shots of my ghosts emerging, revealed from the white fog
of the canvas.
