Acrylic on canvas 2.4 m x 1.5 mShow details

This is the triptych that won an award in Florence, Italy. It is made up of 3 panels each measuring 75 cm x 1.5 m. Each panel describes a different section of the western deserts of New South Wales in Australia not far from where I live. It is a beautiful but raw and difficult environment to live in, a place that has been ravaged by the recent 15 year drought and which shows the scars of earth raw and on the surface with no covering.
