ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN ASH SERIES

After visiting the Murrindindi Region of Victoria, I was intrigued by the landscape, in particular, the breath-taking Mountain Ash forests that were devastated by bushfires but are now in a state of regeneration.

Rich in texture and detail, these limited-edition photographic works capture the distinct hatched patterns created by thousands of extremely tall, bare, Mountain Ash trees around Marysville.

Each photograph explores the forest at different times, creating various interpretations of the multi-layered, textural patterns in these hauntingly beautiful and mystical landscapes.

The photographic artworks have monochromatic colour palettes ranging from neutral soft greys, deep blues and blacks to warm, earthy tones.

Artworks in portrait and landscape orientations provide interior styling options for statement pieces, pairs or collections in homes and commercial projects.

My Mountain Ash series celebrates the majesty of the forest, created by devastation and regeneration, but still standing tall. And I hope to encourage you to discover the detail and see the beauty in this magnificent landscape with these works.

My Mountain Ash–Standing Tall solo exhibition was held in 2021 at MIRA (Marysville Information and Regional Artspace).

 

Selected works from the series were shown at The Other Art Fair Sydney (and upcoming Melbourne) presented by Saatchi Art.

"It spoke to me … art is so subjective and often it just evokes a feeling. I love the subtlety in colour contrast, the depth of colour itself and that it looks so tactile. To me it’s reminiscent of a Japanese textile." – Pip, Collector
