Artist statement: ‘Moving 1’ is from the nine-image series Moving.
‘Everything is in motion. Everything flows. Everything is vibrating.’ – Wayne Dyer
The series Moving, was inspired when I flew over a diverse range of natural geographical formations and man-made structures in Victoria, Australia. I was struck by the diversity of texture and colour, which seemed to produce a unique canvas as I moved.
In the piece ‘Moving 1’, the rich yellows and oranges of the soil contrast with the darkness of the black coal. The waves of colour shift across the image while the unseen miners continue to strip important resources from the earth.
