It was like she had always imagined. Finally she was here in a land full of creatures, dryness and nothing but raw beauty. There was nothing else to see but the vast harsh landscape that surrounded her. The beauty played tricks on her and then bored her. The repetitive nature hypnotised her. The hues and straight lines lay burnt in her memory. Eucalyptus bushes grew abundantly with their subtle grey green ash leaves and the humming lilac aura. The palette was euphoric and made her instantly smile. The bright ghost shines deep across your eyes echoing the same reflections everywhere. The rays of sienna rise and fall everyday warming the earth and her heart. There is so much loneness on a land like this; yet there is comfort and solidarity amongst these rich warm tones. These paintings reflect that landscape; cool, rich, vague, isolated and a sense of warmth once you get to know them. You can go into them and be lost or you can go into them and be confident. Navigating between the different planes and taking risks to see the true beauty that is all around us.
