Year of the Horse

2014

This period saw further refinements of my explorations of man, beast and myth. Most works were realised in inks and watercolor.

In Chinese tradition, the horse signifies movement and change. I made a large body of work mostly using inks and watercolor that touches on all the changes that I was going through during the year.
       

           
                          
           


Year of the Iron Horse
2014

A series of acrylic paintings that observes the Year of the Horse motif through a wild west allegory, drawing parallels between colonisation of American and Australian continents. The timeless tale of man's interaction with untamed nature is at once both epic and romantic, and is as relevant as ever.
   
     
           
         


         


Vision Quest
2013

Vision Quest is a rite of passage, with the goal of understanding one's purpose. This series marks a period of great significance in my life, of deconstruction and reconstruction.
While developing a personal set of symbols and mythology, I shed the contemporary elements from my work, instead focusing on the universal truths, dilemmas and challenges that a person must face regardless of the time period they live in.
