Good to be entering competitions again. I had been away from the easel for a bit following my MFA, tidying up various projects and without studio space. Feeling the need to mess with paint again I rented a studio in The Nest, which has since moved from its original address on Botany Rd near Green Square up the road to 76 Botany Rd, Waterloo.
I continued working on the James Cook theme and this painting “The Raw” was one of a pair, the other painting “The Cooked” being sold on the night of the Open Studio in July 2018. Obvious citation of Levi Strauss and the enduring power of myth and storytelling.
