This work is from a series of paintings from the Tarkine region of Tasmania following my participation in an environmental arts project. ‘Tarkine in Motion 2017’ involved over 100 artists who were invited to capture this magnificent landscape through various artistic expressions. This painting depicts my experience of the wild, coastal region of the Tarkine, which is battered by the ‘Roaring 40s’ winds straight off the Southern Ocean. In maintaining my philosophy of describing my tangible, sensory connection to the landscape, I have made a deliberate decision to saturate some colours or use a cool/warm palette. In doing so, it helps to describe how I ‘felt’ in the landscape rather than just a visual memory of it. With a bit of a departure to my usual style, the huge kelp forests that inhabit the ocean here intrigued me – so I painted it.
