Chloe’s Caday’s most recent paintings of the Australian bushland are all painted en plein air at her new home in She Oaks, a beautiful little locality nestled right beside the Brisbane Ranges National Park in Victoria. Mid Winter Blooms I & II capture the transitioning of seasons of the bush, where fallen eucalyptus flowers cover the forest floor. It is during this time when the bush turns to a vibrant golden hue as the acacias begin to flower, the days becoming longer and the birds’ song echoing through the forest.
Drawing inspiration from her Filipino roots, Chloe’s practice explores the importance of travel and connection to the land as it signifies the historical, cultural and spiritual connections within place. Working primarily outdoors allows her to utilise her immediate surroundings to inform her work and using oil to create gestural markings to capture her presence in the paintings.
Pair with Dry Winter Hollow II.
