(with Lynne Boyd)

Acrylic on paper, self-adhesive tape

Dimensions variable

Tidings is both painterly and sculptural. Its lyrically topographic surface is made from hundreds of handpainted squares that flicker with gestural marks and glow with luscious colour.

The superscript text echoes the pageantry of Renaissance paintings, but the words come from 20th Century painter, Agnes Martin:

And then sometimes there are moments of perfection and in these moments we wonder why we ever thought life was difficult.

Exhibited in the 2015 Dirty Dozen Xmas Show, Campbell Arcade, Melbourne
