“Everyone of a certain age can remember the epic journey across the Hay Plains.Almost a rite of passage when travelling from Sydney to Adelaide, the Hay Plains had a reputation for boiling radiators, empty fuel tanks and speeding fines!…This extended body of work evolved in his studio. One painting led to another and then another. Just like the actual road trip, the paintings evolved sequentially and each work documents the nuanced shifts of vegetation, horizon, sky and the elements.”

Christopher Hodges 2017
