Oil on canvas 120 × 120 cm
This is my entry for Country Energy Landscape prize… Fingers crossed!!
This piece has taken up most of my time lately, but its been fun!

‘Hungry Landscape – Tamworth’ is a portrayal of shedding sheep before a storm so shearing can proceed the next day. The strong colours of red and brown represent the harshness of the dry landscape and the intense need for rain, which is the ‘blood’ of life. The urgency to move the sheep is magnified by the directional wind change, “you know the storm is close when the wind starts to suck the landscape toward it like a hungry animal”. The storm clouds in the subliminal depicts a unpredictable hungry animal; will it devour life or give life with rain. The two figures in the distance rushing toward the yards represent human frailty and the cycle of life and death.
