Additional Information

Roots that spread so deep (Australian Landscape) by Jude Willis – This is an original work on paper featuring an abstracted view of landscape and water towards the end of a hot summers day..

The multilayered, poetic painting style infused with tangles of lines, strokes and marks (some spontaneous, some careful and following observation) reflect my response to the history and soul of a place as well as an awareness of the movement of the trees, the rippling of the grass, the sound of the wind and the crunch of foliage underfoot.  It is a multi-sensory record of what it feels like to be in a place at a particular moment in time.

Importantly, it is also a homage to the fragility of Australia’s natural ecologies and the ever-present dangers of further environmental degradation.

I am inspired by nature and in particular the Arts and Crafts Movement (including the work of William Morris) and the Art Nouveau works of practitioners such as Charles Rennie Macintosh and Gustav Klimt.  In creating my work I’m exploring not only the beauty of the natural world but the fragile ecology of place.

In creating these artworks I hope to bring lightness and joy to the viewer with art that would sit well in either formal or informal settings.

In titling my works I like to incorporate poetry or music that brings me delight as well as conveying meaning.

The work is mixed media on 300gsm arches paper.
