Paintings on Redfern Railway Foundry Moulds
Exhibited at the Other Art Fair, Redfern Railway, 2018
Exhibited Manning Regional Gallery, Taree, 2023

In 1992 I was living in a warehouse painting studio opposite the abandoned Redfern Railway yards and foundry site.  Due to clearing up the site they had created huge piles of the old wood foundry pattern moulds.

Unwanted, they were setting fire to them and selling others off in piles. I managed to salvage a few wheel barrows full which have ended up moving house with me numerous times. 

On and Off over the years I have painted on a few and recently painted a series which I exhibited at the Other Art Fair. which turned out to be a lovely story, as coincidentally it was at Redfern Railway yards where they first came from.

Each piece is unique and I see them as little theatrical stages upon which a painted story is acted out
