Portraiture is a subject that has captivated me for many years. Within this portrait, a double-mouthed figure stares out from the picture plane, demanding a moment of dual observation with the viewer – Who is looking at who?
The majestic symbol of the Waratah fills the background. A Waratah’s phoenix-like ability to spread seeds and grow from the ashes of a bush fire make them, for me, a symbol of great beauty, boldness, endurance and power; attributes that I strive for as a woman. I feel Portraiture enables me to study the human as a vessel; the exterior to a complex concoction of experiences, thoughts and emotions that construct the essence of our identity.
