I am most attracted to landscapes that demonstrate the action of time and natural forces leading to sedimentation, erosion.The passage of time is demonstrated within the shape and physical detail of the landscape and often bears witness to the violence and upheaval that has caused its formation... I often swim using a waterproof camera to record the details. I also kayak, walk or climb' Neil Frazer
This monumental view is Neil Frazer's response to his exploration of the NSW coast, especially the entrance to Sydney Harbour and the heads. It is a tremendously physical depiction of place, in his act of creation with shapes and planes defined by thick impasto paint and the carved whiteness surrounding them and in the framing of his subject. It elicits a strong visceral response while also possibly teasing out metaphors about place, and in our Australian context, about travelling across wild oceans to a new home.
