Other Places - Mirrors
Acrylic and tinted film

That distinct haze of the distant ranges present only from a great distance, a unique combination of eucalyptus gas, dust, light and whatever other magical elements lies between it and you. I’ve spent a lot of years trying to name that colour - part emerald, part magenta - to capture that quality, but it shifts from morning to dusk, from north to south. Mirrors is a musing on these observations. They catch and bend the light, the colours blend, reflect, merge. They are part illusion, a solid gas, the shadow of a mountain, part thing, a space for reflection.

Other Places moves intuitively between experience, visions and materials. It is what I’ve seen, and what I’ve imagined, furniture that evokes and/or embodies the landscapes of Australia. As a collection it off-sets a conceptual underpinning with a sense of curiosity and joy. It encapsulates accumulated observations, imagined myths, reminders of present wonders and desired futures, these are other places.
