LAWNSCAPES - 

Portraits of Canberran Houses

@ The Front Gallery Cafe, Canberra

8 - 26th May, 2014

 

These paintings explore the familiar streetscapes of older Canberra and the character of individual homes in our suburban environment.

 

I have chosen houses with a sense of space and environmental order which exemplify the planned and planted Canberran design aesthetic.

 

I am also interested in observing barriers to the streetscape (via the use of the hedge or shrub) and how this reflects our desire for privacy .
