In a time of lockdowns and restricted travel, hiking the Cape to Cape Track has given me a sense of freedom. The physical challenge distracted me from the yearning to visit family overseas and became a panacea to this strange new world. My work visualises recognisable elements of the area within one panarama, and looks out to distant shores. I am so grateful for this spacious and wild coastline right now. However my freedom is limited, confined by hard borders.
'Freedom' explores my conflicting emotions with the use fluid, free-flowing paint and the complex layering of glazes and opaque controlled marks to form a symbolic ocean barrier.
