From the artist:
“About 25kms from the township of Young is a small white cottage sitting on a hillside. Here I have a studio where I have painted for the last 3 years and it is here where I painted the work in this exhibition titled ‘Ironbark’. Here I am surrounded by the history and stories of the goldfields and bushrangers, small deserted towns that once had meaning and life and the sheep and wheat farms that patchwork their way to the horizon. The poet Henry Lawson was born just down the road in Grenfell and A.B (Banjo) Paterson wrote ‘The Man from Ironbark’ in nearby Stuart Town. A place of colour and of colourful characters.
This exhibition of 40 paintings includes figurative and landscape works, some inspired by stories told to me by old time locals.
