'Dusk to Dawn' by Steffie Wallace

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

This is a new series of works focusing on the beginning and the ending of each day, giving us reason to be inspired by nature's beauty in these dark times. My work has always centred on the changing sky and its cloud formations and exploring this theme has had a profound impact on me since the lockdowns began last year, limiting where we can go and what we can see. The vastness of Sydney Harbour with its rocky outcrops provides a perfect setting for these works, based on my photographs taken over previous years. The paintings are a celebration of the end and the beginning of each day; the passing of time being a necessary component providing hope and optimism during the challenges wrought by covid19.
