Further Information

This work was one of the final works in a loose series of paintings that became casually known as ’night pictures’ made from around 2004 through to 2008.  Most were untitled, as the artist wanted the reading of the imagery to remain somewhat ambiguous, open to personal interpretation, in keeping with their abstraction and distancing from specific place. Untitled (2008) is large in scale, contrasting with the original source - a small clump of bushy dried weeds in local Fitzroy.  Through scaling and extensive cropping and other manipulation, the artist monumentalised an everyday and abject subject with a certain malevolent quality, questioning what lurks in this tangle.
