Beyond Desert Dust
26 Jan – 6 Feb 2007
This Exhibition is the result of a promise I made back in 1973 when in an interview with ‘The Great Southern Herald’ I said I would one day have an exhibition.
It seems only fitting that it’s held in Katanning where I grew up and lived for most of my life.
For the past 2 ½ years I had been privileged to have been able to travel throughout the Australian outback, the Kimberley’s, Far North Queensland and the deserts – Tanami – Gibson – Great Victoria and Great Sandy. It was these areas that inspired me to take up my brushes again after 30 years.
The many thousands of kilometres I travelled thinking to myself ‘This bloody dust!’. Then, one day I stopped, got out and looked over a sand dune, I was amazed, I encourage everyone to do this. The colours you see and the images that go through your mind just by stopping and looking out ‘Beyond Desert Dust’.
