we are trying to understand this crazy cool dead tree looking situation. there is so much moisture and green everywhere. how are they like this? dunno. but I do believe that the natural world can often be a metaphor to understand the spiritual. so it’s got me thinking all sorts of things. . .
Flights & dreams. I'm now back in the studio placing the finishing touches on pieces & creating new works with moments like these still flowing through me.
Light. Breathless. Mid air. Soaring past mountaintops & soaking up everything with the senses.
Two magical weekends of sharing new pieces await. This Saturday for Sydneysiders I will be part of a wonderfully impromptu group exhibition at @graphisgallery in Woollahra, join us for drinks from 2 till 4. The paint will still be wet.
The following weekend see's me taking flight once more to join @saddlerandco in our I N C R E D I B L Y exciting collaboration & the exclusive opening of my latest solo exhibition of works F I E L D. |
This is going to be a seriously swoon worthy affair. Join us for a progressive evening from canapés & conversation & the first look at these new works in store, to a delectable dinner with the artist at @pressdubbo all paired with the luscious @logan_wines. It'll be worth a road trip!
Tickets available now through @saddlerandco & feel free to message with any questions. It's going to be seriously beautiful!
You may not be able to see it but we are actually pretty far up the mountain. @harperbenjamink - I was super prepared, no cucumber and slim jim this time around! Legit hiking shoes a la @shaking_it_out & walking sticks that saved my life. This is the hardest hike in the Park, it’s 8 hours total. We did 4 and feel real real good about it bc it was STRAIGHT UP A MOUNTAIN!
To break up the beach photos, here are some snow capped mountains captured on the drive through the Southern Alps. Fun fact: These flowers, lupins, are sought out every year here (for viewing and ALOT of photography), particularly in Lake Tekapo with the gorgeous Mount Cook backdrop. However, they aren't native to high-country landscapes and many environmentalists and ecologists are not in support of planting them. They are spreading so quickly and cannot be contained. The other side of the argument is that they make for a good fodder crop according to some farmers and agricultural scientists. It is unclear whether agricultural benefits of these lupins will outweigh a major risk to fragile native ecosystems. #foodforthought#lupins#mountains#southernalps#snowcapped#newzealand#explore#wanderlustofnz#naturalbeauty#photographylover#motherearth#earthpixnz#purenewzealand
