CloseUp#3-nw

Born in the days of the “Industrial Revoloution” White Bay Power Station
was a symbol o
f cutting edge technology. Today it remains an impressive
(but decaying) landmark that
was once called the Gateway to Balmain’s
IndustrialĀ  Waterfront
.
Still standing, although visibly crumbling of late, this fascinating structure displays
a rich aray of textures, patterns and colours under the bright Spring sunlight.
These very small paintings explore the architectural details that inspire these awesome
graphic shapes and colours.
The Close Up series of Small White Bay paintings is now on display
in my window at 95 Beattie Street Balmain
and can be purchased from me.
This exhibition will continue, on a rotation basis with new local rooftop paintings,
until December.
