Still life with Pears is part of a body of work which celebrates the rituals of the everyday and helps us find meaning and beauty in the ordinary. This body of work celebrates the humble gumnut, the dusty vase in the back of the china cabinet, the pinch pot brought home from school. It aims to strip art back to its formal qualities of shape, colour, line and contrast and has given me a chance to explore a subdued palette. The gentle pinks, grey greens and strong ochres which are so commonly seen in Australia’s native flora dominate this work and others in the series, which remains along with my other works a celebration of Australia’s epic environment.
