An art studio in middle of Central Australia.
The pink glow on the horizon that always rises as the sun goes down.
This land is so isolated! A road with no through traffic, no-one on the way to anywhere. The road that I am on eventually connects with a road that leads to Australia’s biggest lake, Lake Eyre, 70m below sea level and bone dry. I carried food for 10 days, with 100 litres of spare water and fuel to drive 1500km, in two days I did not pass a single car. The weather was not hot at all, compared to the 38° that it reach only a few weeks before. Summer was almost here, but it waited for me.
A fellow by the name of Jack lived in this bus, with his veranda, his water supply close by, and his shady garden – the only trees for 50km. He would come out and spend the winter months painting. Amazing to think that this bus was towed by tractor over dozens of sand dunes to get here and is situated 600km from the nearest sealed road.
Working on this photograph, the trees seemed to me like people waiting for something, who eventually turned into trees … still waiting.

Printing: Printed with pigment inks on metallic photographic paper, and mounted on Acrylic glass; each image presents crisp, clear, and bright. Most people when first viewing the finished piece is convinced that it is lit from behind. Acrylic glass is a totally transparent material, with very little reflection, but is also very hardy and strong. It is also temperature and static neutral requiring very little cleaning. Available at various finished sizes and thickness of acrylic, please refer to the price list for all available options.
Gift Range: Recently I have released this Gift Range of smaller sizes, using the 3mm thick Acrylic. These smaller Gift sized images come with optional hanging methods including Acrylic ‘panels’ where they are hung on the wall using 3M self-adhesive ‘velcro’ tabs. They are great because you do not need to drill any holes, nor screw or nail hanging hooks. This product allows you to simply stick the finished Acrylic photograph directly to the wall easily and securely in just minutes. This adhesion method makes picture hanging safe for rentals, offices, tiles, glass, brick, or concrete; with totally safe removal or repositioning when and however you like.
The Gift Range is available in the sizes: 50x16cm and 75x24cm.
50x16cm (6 x 20 inch) – $198 (3mm slim baton), $240 (3mm with Float Frame), $280 (6mm with Float Frame)
75x24cm (9 x 30 inch) – $380 (3mm slim baton), $440 (3mm with Float Frame), $500 (6mm with Float Frame)
‘Slim baton’ is an aluminium strip on the back of the finished Acrylic.
‘Float Frame’ is an aluminum frame on the back of the finished Acrylic, of which comes with an interlocking aluminum rail that you screw to the wall.
(‘3M velcro system' can be used for all of the above options.)
Cleaning: When cleaning simply use a feather duster and a microfibre cloth (if necessary use “isopropyl alcohol”).
