‘Your paintings dominate my house, are a source of constant joy to me, and are jaw dropping to the people who visit.’
David Stevens Writer/Director Oscar and Emmy Award Nominee
In 1988 David Stevens directed a film called Always Afternoon, which was set in Australia during the First World War. He invited me to observe the making of it, and what captured my attention was the actors waiting off-set, relaxing in the sun, some sleeping, on a spectacularly beautiful coastline.
Many of these paintings possess a meditative quality. Still. Silent. Dreamlike and observe the unspoken intimacy that war often forged between soldiers.
