'Blue Sky Illara' by Sid Palazzi

Price: $1,250.00
Original landscape painting by local Wagga Wagga artist, Sid Palazzi.

Artist Statement:
Walking out from camp each day you are struck bu the vastness of this environment. Around mid day the contrast is at its maximum. I've taken many photos on more cloudy days. This painting was done back in the studio from such photos with the aim of showing a softer side to the outback.

The Central Australian landscape has been the inspiration for my painting over the past decade. It has been a privilege to have access not only to remote National Parks but also to Aboriginal Lands. With a group of practising artists I visited Ruby Gap and on Tempe Downs Station Illara Creek and Walker Creek. The process I developed over repeated visits was to walk out alone into the landscape. I allowed myself to be immersed in the vastness surrounding me and to absorb its detail.  More importantly was to contemplate my presence in a landscape that has been home to Aborignal people for tens of thousands of years. My painting technique has developed to capture the vividness of  the colour and the depths of the shadows. By keeping the contrast to a maximum I am working to capture in my paintings the power of the light on the landscape. Sid Palazzi
