Day at the Lake, 2021


Acrylic on canvas, 60x60cm

Day at the Lake is based upon a childhood memory, playing in a lake out near Narrabri as a child. I can’t remember the exact name or location, but there is a feeling of comfort as well as alienation as these two figures play in the water. I think we can all relate to this feeling of the uncanny – where our memories of place are altered through time and suddenly something which felt so familiar is now foreign to us.
