Ningaloo Station, Rest

205 x 455 x 30mm
Medium Oil on Linen


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

The fading light at dusk presents viewers with an ever evolving experience of very slow progressive change in light, in tone and hue. It is dusk, instead of observing the sun setting over the ocean you turn away and observe the light over the spinifex on the beach. The light is as immersive and emotive as the sunset but often overlooked. The hues are every changing at this time of day and are hard to define as one single colour.
