Exhibited as a feature piece in Waterborne, a month long solo show at Just Another Project Space in Prahran, Melbourne, Australia.

Inspired by The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the albatross tattoo, rather than being hung around her neck like a curse, is slipping down her back and falling away, already being left behind in the water behind her. Her hair is caught in the wind and lifted up as she wades through the cleansing waters of the ocean towards the setting sun on the horizon, glowing stars appearing in the night sky like wishes waiting to be fulfilled, and all the possibility of an unknown future lying ahead. This is one of the most calming, peaceful, uplifting pieces I have ever painted.

Painted on 100% cotton duck, high density weave, acid free 380gr double thick canvas stretched on a 38mm deep frame, offering a contemporary clean edge look with no further framing required. Faux gold foil on canvas edges creates a subtle glow effect when the painting is hung flat against a wall. D-hooks and hanging rope are installed on the back of the canvas for easy hanging. Signed with artists initials and year of creation on front. Sealed with archival quality varnish, allowing light cleaning with a damp cloth if needed.
