||The old saying that "there are no straight lines in nature" really applies to this work. Being near water is a natural inspiration to create these curves.
The shape doesn't necessarily represent the way a river winds through the landscape but rather the flow of forms that occur near the river - water streaming, rocks that jut out of the landscape, the way the water and rocks meet - this shape is repeated everywhere. It is in the top of clouds against the blue of the sky, the top of trees against the sky, the way ants walk in a line, the way rocks crack under pressure, the squiggle patterns you find in gum trees..
With this particular work, the whole river bank is filled with the repetition of this curved line. When you work with the landscape as a medium and a canvas at the same time, the highest ambition is not to come to a space with a preconceived idea about what will be created but to see what is occurring and to create a harmony with it.
