I had the great privilege to have worked at Dacou Gallery for the duration of the exhibition of Emily K Kngwarreye retrospective.
Here is a painting I did many years ago as a tribute and response to Emily Kngwarreye. Her work opened my heart and painters eye to a way of seeing that still to this day resonates with my approach to painting. More and more I find myself drawn to expressing my story and connection through the flattening of the plane and the placement of colour to create a resonance of feeling and tension on the canvas. I love her individuality, her resilience and her many varied hats. I hope to have the opportunity soon to work alongside some of our most innovative and inspirational desert artists.
