Day Two of the online exhibition, and todays painting is:
Sandpiper lost in the jungle
The sandpiper is a coastal bird, one I watch working its way along the shores of the Georges river, a coastal bird, on the edge of a river in a large city. For me, it brings amoment of peace in the mayhem, and is somewhat out of context to the busy city around me
On arriving in Sydney in 2016, after spending a few years living on Norfolk island, it took a while to adjust. I was, still am, lost in the jungle somehow, still feeling more connected to somewhere else.
This sandpiper bird, lost in the jungle is somehow representative of that disconnect.
This painting is 30cmx30cm Acrylic on linen, professionally stretched so it's tight like a drum, and finished with d-hooks and string ready to hang. It is available in the shop.
