1770 is coastal town in central Queensland.
This painting is part of my ‘Segmented’ series of paintings.
It is painted on 140 idividual pieces of MDF panel and then glued to a white panel which forms part of the compostition.
Each piece was painted individually, I did not assemble the pieces together until all were painted, so I had no idea of how it would turn out until it was assembled. This is an exciting way of creating a painting, not knowing how you are going until the end!
This painting is currently in my studio and is unframed, a frame for this painting needs to be strong and sturdy as the work is on the heavy side. A molding simple in design and white in colour is a preference.
I liked this painting a lot upon completion and had to keep it close by me for a while until I was ready to let it go out into the world, therefore this is the first time that I have exhibited this painting!
NOTE: You may notice that my signature is backwards, that’s because it is! My painting signature has changed over the years, but now a use a monogram of McAulay. this will be evident in future paintings (watch this space!!!)
(in the upper left corner you can see my signature – in reverse! for a time I signed all my work like that. now I use a monogram)
