Here is a new painting, called "Pavement". The inspiration behind it was the experience of walking along these multitudes of pathways, moving in hordes of directions, cutting and bisecting each other; overloaded with textures, sounds, energy.
Elwood is the place I live. It is a place I am deeply attached to, as I grew up here and I still consider it the best place to live in Melbourne. It has trees, beach, parks, art deco apartments - basically a visual rhythm that I find addictive and wanted to express.
Another thing that I love about Elwood is that most of the streets are named after poets, such as Tennyson Street and Shakespeare Grove. So, scattered within the picture are some of these names.
