New to this show is a collection of unique carved photographic images featuring the eerily beautiful mangrove systems of the Hawkesbury River. These artworks reveal his unique treatment of the medium whereby he is effectively piercing and carving into the delicate paper surface of the photographic print.

source “This body of work is the result of my exploration through the Hawkesbury River and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park,” says the artist. “I have carved into paintings and photographs of mangrove trees, digging through the pigment to reveal its underbelly. A scarification of lines that build a bridge over the void of landscape towards my inner world.”

His abstract landscapes and figurative works contain recurrent symbolic motifs, fusing the landscape and everyday historical icons with narrative and myth.
