Artist Statement: I believe we are all connected to the land: she does not belong to us; we belong to her. When I am alone and consciously engaged with her, I feel this connection intrinsically. Being in the landscape is a spiritual, meditative experience for me and I paint intuitively to convey this connection. I use many layers of paint that I build up and then peel away as a visual metaphor for our relationship with the ever-changing earth and for our own continual transformation. This is a painting of a secluded beach in Western Australia called named 'Yardoogarra' by the aboriginal people. I was there on a holiday and the landscape has affected me greatly so I continue to paint her regularly and hope to get back there soon. Tracey-Maree Smith.
