What makes me want to paint what I paint is the light – specific light on specific things. But I also like to make well balanced compositions. So my paintings aren’t spontaneous responses – I spend time arranging them and painting them. And I don’t want to pursue style or technique that might obscure what I’m interested in – I just want to show as clearly as I can what I saw when that particular subject was in that particular light.

Using the myriorama device to paint cattle in a paddock and a kitchen bench was appropriate because in both cases the content remains the same but arranges itself differently from day to day.

Yvette is a twin calf abandoned by her mother. We discovered her six days after she was born badly dehydrated and have hand reared her. Orphaned calves have a melancholy air about them.

When I first started regularly visiting the AGNSW a painting I always looked forward to seeing was Peter Powditch’s Seascape ll. It hasn’t been on display for many years so now I just have a memory that evokes ideas of it as Piero’s Baptism without figures or a mid 60’s Hockney version of Breughel’s Fall of Icarus without Icarus (it needs a tiny splash) or more prosaically a Julian Opie before photoshop and before Julian Opie. I liked the painting a lot and it would be interesting to see it again.
