The Return Sauce 2011
The main element binding the Tweed community together is the unique flora and fauna which is found in the Valley of Contrasts. The surrounding landscape with the lush rain forests, the undulating hills and mountains, the pristine coastline and the rare wildlife are the essential components to creating this magnificent place, which both locals and tourists appreciate. I feel privileged to call this magical caldera home, a place of friendship, fond memories and a sustainable future.

The correlation between graffiti art and the natural environment may be difficult to grasp immediately as graffiti art is typically linked with the inner-urban city environment, however this creation could be seen as a parallel universe where the ultimate mystery bursts from the earth in one final glow. This landscape concept is easily recognised however the abstract element asks us to look further, to question reality and see what may or may not coexist.

I am pleased two works (Final Glow and Cabarita) will be a part of the Caldera Artfest at Murwillumbah Civic Centre and Final Glow will be exhibited at Caldera Artfest at O’Reilly’s. Looking forward to seeing you there!
I've felt a little burnt out lately and wanted to get back to basics, just some art for arts sake. There's nothing like packing a few colours and trekking up a Tweed Valley hillside to relax and take in some fresh air amongst the fragrant whiff of Ironlaks to complete the mission.
