Looking for space. A gruelling WIP on canvas (25cm) based on a work on paper. Clinging like a demon to a fixed idea and struggling to loosen up enough to see the possibilities and embrace its unique elements. Hard!

I hope you dance (when you get the choice to sit it out). So marks the dawn of a new chapter. Enjoying experimenting pulling together styles I’d imagined as mutually exclusive. 🤔Bit of Whiteley inspiration.

Eaten alive II...foolish enough to attempt version II with the weight of expectation, (or desperate enough for distraction). 25cm on canvas.

Eaten alive. Little 20cm canvas thing as the dearth of sleep continues to steal any focus. Thoughtless, but as always, pertinent. Happy Tuesday!

Quick sketch. After two nights without sleep, it was bound to happen!! Hope your week starts creatively.🎨 #art #contemporaryart #australianart #artworkshop #australianartist #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #sketch #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal
Arms of the angel (metaphor in the flightless birds...How frustrating would that be?😫) No wonder they stick their heads in the sand. Brain halfway through the second consecutive all-nighter. Gotta get some sleep.

Creek bed. Pausing to celebrate a serendipitous collage I’ve painted over so many times. Termite mounds and horse remains...like it was meant to be. The magic continues. 🎉

Where’s the back button? Should have stopped five minutes ago! 😫The obligatory overnight creepy, ugly one.

The most surreal Boyd I could find to finish before daylight welcomed by mist hanging like scraps of gauze in the trees...beyond magnificent. Hope you enjoy yours!

Version 2 inspired by Boyd’s agony and ecstasy. Unwritten rule: must always attempt an idea at least twice. #art #contemporaryart #australianart #australianartist #darkart #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #sketch #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal
It’s cold. It’s dark. Nothing’s working. Nothing ever works. Paint hates me. I hate paint more. Go away. Where are you going? Where’s the white? Take that. And that. 3am kitchen conversations... #art #contemporaryart #minimalism #artworkshop #darkart #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #sketch #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal

The pond. Inspired by Boyd, Twombly’s poem, and the myth of narcissus. Have a curious Friday the 13th!

Haphazardly painting over a sketch that wasn’t working. So messy and odd, but seems to be pleading with me!! #art #contemporaryart #minimalism #artworkshop #darkart #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #sketch #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal
Why we only ride kangaroos in off-peak traffic. Just messing around before night fall, laughing at the koala that magically appeared. (Alternative explanations to ‘magic’ welcome. Pondered attentional bias but too boring.)🤔 #art #contemporaryart #minimalism #artworkshop #darkart #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #sketch #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal

Thrill of the chase (Working title) - inspired by the ongoing debate about culling half our coat of arms, and a recent Louis Theroux episode on hunting. (Trivia from working with @emuaustralia: roos and emus signify perpetual progress as neither can go backwards. Hmmm.) #art #contemporaryart #australianartist #artworkshop #australianart #painting #modernart #paintings #painter #wallart #modernart #artist #melbourneart #artwork #faces #artistsoninstagram #abstraktkunst #distortion #instaart #expressionism #artstudio #artoftheday #surrealism #surreal

Ended up curtailing the spook quotient while keeping the record of marks made and erased. Sure I’ll revisit it again, but now it’s taking a nap.
