Ningaloo Triptych

Medium Oil on linen


Inspired by light fading over spinifex on the beach at the remote Ningaloo Station in the North West of Australia.

These paintings were inspired by a trip to the remote Ningaloo Station during the recent solar eclipse. Although it would be tempting to just focus on imagery of the eclipse itself, I found that I was more drawn to my experience of the slightly eery atmosphere created by the reduced light. As most people were observing the eclipse I turned away and observed the surrounding landscape, and the undefined quality of light that was neither dawn nor dusk. It created a quiet, a restful feeling of ‘pause’ — there was nothing to do except be present and simply observe.
