About The Art

Below, as well as on the landing page of this site, are the primary categories for the works in this online gallery. The categories are based on my artistic vision regarding the interpretation of the geography of Australia: the places, the people, the towns and cities, plus the natural ecosystems and flora and fauna.

Viewing The Gallery Online

Page adjustment to full screen is the best way to view an image and it is also wise to Google and or view your computer monitors colour and brightness adjustment instructions so that you are viewing the artwork to its best advantage. I would also point out that while an image can look quite stunning on a computer screen when viewed as a tangible physical object, especially when enlarged and hanging on your wall, it can be an entirely different matter. When I first began enlarging my artworks as large wall prints I was literally blown away; after all, I have spent decades reproducing work in books!

About print ratios

An aspect ratio is simply the proportional relationship of the width to the height of an image. Ratios 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 3:4; 4:5 and 2:3 are the ratios provided on selected images throughout the collections. There are two primary reasons for ratios, one is that depending on the camera’s format the ratio’s are generated automatically in-camera. For example ratio 2:3 is generated by most standard SLR cameras; in the days of film all ‘slides’ were ratio 2:3. medium format digital cameras are 3:4 and medium format film cameras are 4:5. In my very early days, I photographed entirely in a 1:1 square ratio. Of course, this does not mean that the ratios offered in this gallery are the native ratios, many were cropped purely for aesthetic reasons. It is the aesthetics, the balance/composition, that makes the image appealing. Of course when viewing to purchase for decor purposes it also depends on the wall space you wish to decorate. Ratio’s 1:2 and 1:3 are popular when there is a large wall and the furniture takes up a proportion of the wall height; about one third in the case of a lounge. If the wall surface ratios dictate a certain ratio you can search by ratio here. Some images can be hung either horizontally or vertically, especially the abstracts. You would need to ut changes through as a special request.

About the keywords

To further enhance search capabilities the collection has been key-worded. Each linked directly to images that may be drawn from across the collections; for example, there may be birds in the black and white and the colour ‘birds only’ collection, the link will reveal them all. Regarding states, the wildlife and much of the flora is found in multiple, and the choices of these images are not state-based. We have also included the various ratios (shapes) of the artworks. States have not been applied to flora and fauna simply because most occur in multiple states.
