EXHIBITION : 'HINTERLAND'
20th August to 13th September
Michael Reid Murrurundi
Cnr Boyd & Mayne Streets, Murrurundi
I paint the places with which I'm very familiar, I live in the hinterland of the Gold Coast so my landscapes are based on my property, the gardens and surrounding area. I also spend a lot of time along the coast of south east Queensland and far north NSW, my seascapes are inspired by this region. My art is an attempt to create a total synthesis of my visual sensations and lived experiences, they are emotional responses to these places tempered and informed by my keen interest in gardening, wildlife, literature and the natural world.
While my paintings are predominantly landscapes and seascapes, my main interest in paint is to get closer to the way I actually see and experience the world around me..”.
