NEIL TOMKINS. THE LONG WALK HOME
An immersion into the Upper Blue Mountains and a celebration of the natural landscape. As the city reseeds and the air embraces the coolness of altitude the sunset becomes particularly beautiful.
It is in this medium point between day and night a play on light exists, Neil Tomkins in this series aims to capture this magic hour through paint as a translator. It is through movement that Tomkins discovery and probing for understanding first conceptualized. The development of a fragmented reality allowing for an openness that invites the viewer
As the last rays of sun drift over the highest peaks the works tell a narrative of an ancient ocean and mighty peaks of volcanic dust, Tomkins leaves the works as a voyeur allowing the audience to fill in the pieces and find connection through paint, form and memory.
