My Coastal Exposure series explores the jagged coastal edge of our continent where the crust is exposed by the sea. My aim, as always, was to connect with the spiritual power of landscape. Locations are primarily on the coast of NSW, which contains some of the oldest known geological formations on earth.
Yunta Landscapes: The outback is in my bones, despite having lived all my life in a metropolis on the coast. We all belong to the landscape; we are all connected to it and influenced by it. In this series I attempt to express that connection in images – arguably the motivation, conscious or otherwise, of all artists in all ages and all places.
