South West Shorelines
“For this show I have chosen scenes from the South West of the state, an area of unparalleled natural beauty. I chose locations that best express the grandeur of the ocean in this part of the world. I guess you could say that water flows through my work….I will rarely create a painting that does not include a representation of it. The first time I visited Rottnest back in the nineties was the beginning of my involvement with realism as an artist. It was a liberating experience to simply try my best to represent something in paint. And I shall continue to do exactly that” – Leigh Hewson-Bower 2020.
