“Cockatoo Island Conversation” synthetic polymer on canvas, 105cm x 80cm

The Mosman Art Prize exhibition will run from Saturday August 27th to Sunday 10th October in the Mosman Art Gallery, 1 Art Gallery Way, Mosman. I am delighted to join the many wonderful works on display in this prestigious exhibition in it’s 75th year with “Cockatoo Island Conversation “, a 105cm x 80 cm synthetic polymer on canvas work.

I was drawn to the monochrome palette and the jumble of angles and the skeleton of the crane seemed to say so much about past man made activity.

Cockatoo Island is such a big quiet space and I was trying to capture some of that too.

I’ve called it “Conversation ” because it speaks of past and present
