Additional Information

‘Moontide’

The moon and earth move day and night…. hourly urging the tides to swell and contract ….and the day to move from dawn to dusk.

The horizontal orange and yellow of the painting suggest sunrise and sunset. The black vertical pattern expands and contracts suggesting the corresponding movement of the ocean tide throughout the day. (driven by the moon).

The black vertical pattern also combines both its negative and positive shapes to form  hourglass arrangements hinting at the passing of time itself.

I began working with a beautiful piece of tree root I found on a beach on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria. As I drew, using the shape of the tree root as a guide, the pattern of the painting emerged. I looked up from my drawing to the ocean and could see its connections.

The palette is tonal and restricted to basic elements. Pictorial space is created by the vertical pattern resting on the horizontal layers.
