Last year I completed a 12 month contract as Artist in Residence at Aldinga Rhylyn Medical. I spend all of last year (and a little bit of this year) making large scale paintings for their newly renovated building. The staff wanted coastal scenes, as the clinic is quite close to the beach at Port Willunga. Many of the staff members nominated their favourite beach, and (with the aid of google maps,) I went forth and explored these distant shores!! I also created two 360 degree photographic panoramas for the glass wall in the waiting room. The year was very enjoyable, but now I’m looking forward to making smaller works again, and in my usual more narrative style. Thanks to Rhylyn for the amazing job opportunity!
