"Expansive Summer" acrylic on canvas  126x132cm - $4,900

My abstract landscapes are based on the  Australian bush and water and my connections
 to the geographies of previous places I have lived: Israel, Africa, USA, Canada and England.
I aim my paintings to be luscious and evocative, exploring both the physical landscape and
an inner understanding and interpretation of that landscape.

Experiences and feelings of nature are taken back to my studio. I paint large,

use a lot of paint and, while painting, move energetically to allow movement to initiate
rhythms and flow. Intuition of the landscape and boldness drive the work.

   
'Peace in Nature' oil on canvas w white frame 85x182cm - $5,600

The art aims to capture the interaction of branches, trees, vegetation, rocks,
hills, lakes and water. Trees, for example, create “windows”  to the view beyond;
encapsulating the intimacy of the Australian landscape: the slow moving flux of trees,
 leaves and branches, disappearing and reappearing, and the subtle changes in light, space and texture.
