I began with a random throwing , splattering and spraying of paint, then built the landscape over it as though it were being explored and settled. The tangle of wildflowers represents the diversity of our population, we are all imigrants who can grow up and thrive here. The little spots of colour from the initial random layers remind me of aboriginal dot paintings, representing the aboriginal custodians of the land.
