I have a deep connection with the Victorian High Country, specifically the area around Mt Buller. I consider the mountain as a second home and have observed its transformation with the seasons. It is a magical area that allows one to be transported to a place of tranquility and awe, away from the bustle of city life. I have spent many hours observing and soaking in the atmosphere. This exhibition represents a body of work developed over that time. It seeks to portray that connection with the mountain and the beauty of the landscape both in winter and summer. Winter sees the landscape transformed to white and fog and haze with amazing shadowy patterns produced by the snow gums over the white blanketed ground. Summer produces a “golden hour” with breathtaking sunsets and rolling mountains. After the snow melts there also remains an interesting landscape with the infrastructure of the skiing and mountain biking industry. There is a real juxta position of nature and man made, which forces one to wonder what will happen in the future as the planet warms and the snow melts?
