Luminous Earth Exhibition Photos

I'm excited to share some long-awaited photos of my recent solo exhibition, Luminous Earth (Canberra Contemporary Art Space Manuka, Nov 2013), stemming from memories of my experience rafting and hiking in the Grand Canyon, U.S.A. in 2012. I hope you enjoy some of these unusual details from a raw and powerful place - a place where the drawing unravels, where the cliffs heave with life, and sunlight casts granite in gold...
