Born Melbourne 1951. Clive commenced serious art training in 1973 with John Lennox followed by a further 12 months with Max Casey in tonal realism. Clive’s “Minimal Landscapes” have evolved through tonal realism and traditional painting techniques that allow him the liberty of “Capturing a sense of luminosity of light” in what are fleeting instants. His is a more liquid and gestural approach to the subject of landscape as object – a peripheral view.

Nell constantly maintains the dignity and composure of her subjects with a remarkable sensitivity and yet so bold in colour and size as to take your breath away. What is immediately engaging about her rose paintings is the sensual romance and rhythm of these powerful yet delicate works – perfect rhythm in dancing petals capturing a great sense of movement joyously cavorting on the canvas taking us along for the ride.

I am interested in making images from the man made environment, the human presence and the natural landscape. I look for structure and order in transforming the ordinary and transient into flat formal monuments that give the illusion of solidity and permanence.
Drawing is very important to me, it is the initial responsive contact with the subject, before I begin to analyse and dissect in orchestrating the painting.
