New Start

New start was my first experiment with textured and gestural painting taught to me by a fellow artists David Asher brook. I was inspired by scenes from the eastern suburbs, where I grew up and of Sydneys streetscapes. At night David and I would roll out large pieces of canvas onto the pavement and do live painting depicting Sydney’s cityscape. We would then go back to David’s art studio in Bondi and finish the paintings there. David opened my eyes to different methods of painting. from ‘the swimmer at Bondi’ to ‘vivid opera house’ depicted below, I began to find different methods of painting and started to form my own understanding of spontaneous and gestural expression through paint.
