My environment law brain is imposing itself on my art making brain.  In my mind, the image of the jester stands in for everyman.  Here, I use the jester figure, on a tightrope, as metaphor for mankind teetering on the brink of environmental choice - to reduce carbon output or not.  The term Anthropocene is a geological one, suggested by geologists since 2000, to mean that man's impact on the environment is so great as to equal any impact that mother nature could impose, such that there is a new epoch to be called Anthropocene:

Anthropo = man

cene = new

Frog Cake Exhibition  - Following a short course at the Jam Factory in November 2014 with artist Klaus Gotowski, I joined with many other artists in a group exhibition fundraiser held at the new SAHMRI building in March 2015, and then at AC Arts  Light Square Gallery.  The range of frog cakes was a tribute to artist licence and versatility!  My contribution was titled F[r]og, 2015.

Oratunga 'en plein air' trip - In October 2014, together with 3 other artist friends, I spent time painting in the Flinders Ranges.  We were based in Oratunga, near Blinman.  Each day was spent painting at different locations.   Pictured are a group of studies drying on the verandah, and some photos of the scenes observed.

Studio Bowden -  During the latter part of 2014 I made the move to Drayton Street Bowden and established a painting studio, print room, office and Gallery space. I took a few months to build the walls, paint floors and walls, and move in.  My office doubles as my work and studio office.  A new website for Studio Bowden is being built, and a schedule of workshops and events will appear soon!  See

Central StudiosGrote Street, Adelaide.  My time at Central Studios came to an end in November 2014.  Loved being there with a fabulous group of other artists, but needed more space and light, so a move to new premises at Bowden became attractive!  One of the last works made there was a private commission, show leaving the premises in late October!

Outback open art prize

Outback Open Art Prize 2013,  Broken Hill.   My work What Wasn't There, 2012, was a finalist (to the rear right of the image).  This work was inspired by the words of my Polish migrant father, who when arriving by sea in 1949 to the spartan Western Australian landscape, noted 'what wasn't there'.
