WHAT THE JUDGES SAID OF TER­RI­TORY

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

The paint­ing is in­tense with vi­o­lence and yet, it is quiet. The ma­chine hack­ing into the tree is bru­tal. There is an ac­knowl­edge­ment of coloni­sa­tion, rep­re­sented through a well-re­searched jour­ney into lo­cal his­tory; how­ever the artist brings these to light in a way that is nu­anced and con­tem­po­rary. The palette al­lows the artist to add and sub­tract, de­vel­op­ing many lay­ers of dark­ness and shadow, and in so do­ing, he does not al­low us to ig­nore the dark­ness and aware­ness of our his­tory.
