I’ve always enjoyed heading out for walks. In suburbia, up mountains, through the bush, it’s calming yet invigorating and restorative. Until March of 2020 I had thought that I was tuned into my surroundings when out for my walks, then, we were all at home. A lot. Anxiety levels were high, so when I did get the chance to head out on a walk, a newfound appreciation set in. One of my favourite local walks is One Tree Hill at Hall. While out, I would think about what was happening in the world. Thoughts of masks, sanitiser, soap, Google Classrooms & Zoom while surrounded by leaves, flowers, lichen and trees was jarring. I explored this in my work during these times. I painted different vignettes from the same walk, using mostly muted colours over a neon ground. The high-vis colours peeking through the painted landscape reference the clinical, protective, technical items mentioned above. However, they simultaneously manage to add light and hope. These paintings capture my complete thought process for the duration of the walk. From despair to ultimately focusing on the light. In this series of landscapes, she considers the restorative ability of nature through gestural mark making and colour selection.
