Cloud Spotting in Melbourne

I, and my work, have just arrived back in Tasmania after a trip to the big island. It began as the seed of an idea in 2017 when I discovered that amazing artists (and close friends) Helen Seiver and Michele Grimston were also making art about the nuances of the atmosphere and our complex relationship to the weather. From there, the idea grew into an exhibition.

After the opening, I took a road trip to some parts of Australia I’d never been to before. I drove from Melbourne to Alice Springs with plenty of stops and side trips along the way, enjoying a big sky perfect for cloud spotting.
