“Primitive Landscape.2”

Primitive Landscape 2. Mixed media on paper, 50cm. x  70cm.

The trees about the cottage did not actually appear as I portrayed them in this image. There was so much more information for me to record.  Memories of the primitive sound of wind blowing eerily through otherwise impenatable undergrowth.  Ancient branches groaning in objection as one rubbed against another under relentless buffetting. Rustling foliage added to unidentifiable creaks and crashes. All combined to conjure a sense of primordial fear.

Author: David Carroll - Visual Artist

Born in 1947 in North Wales, David migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. He graduated from Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). Davids artwork is inspired by memory; but rather than depict specific events, he reflects emotional situations, infused by present moments of recollection. In recent times, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his work has taken a new and positive direction. His 'Elemental Representions" use colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create a personal visual story line.
