During the Covid19 Melbourne lockdown I’ve had time to sort out some of the boxes crammed in the attic so I’ve been going through old works dating back to the 1980’s. Some of the smaller works have been unwrapped, dusted off and hung in my studio. Most of them are remnants of larger bodies of works. Many of the larger paintings are still rolled up and stacked in the attic for another time.

I’ve been using the lockdown time to take stock of what I’ve made and to think about what to do next. I thought it might be interesting to hang all of these works together, with old works alongside recent ones.
