Blog entry: 27th March 2017 - before arrival at The Rodd.

Brief introduction to my practice.

My practice involves painting landscapes. The subject of these landscapes can be find in the hinterland between reality and my own memory.

As a child I grew up in a farmer’s family. I used to run around the fields and scenic mountains of the surrounding area. I often found myself lost in the fascination of nature, looking at animals, trees and catching insects and I would run home when it got dark. There are lots of animistic stories based on Shintoism and Buddhism, and these have urged me to gain a deeper relationship with nature.

During my time at the Sidney Nolan Trust, I want to spend time in the nature, to have a subtle but fresh experience and give a new light in the memories inside of me. I am planning on taking photos and making some simple drawings during my time at the Trust.
