Artist Statement & Bio
This work was painted in February during an Artist Residency at the Bondi Pavilion. It is the view from the Art Studio, which was situated beside the Pottery Studio in one of the rear walls of the Pavilion. My Residency was cut short due to the Covid 19closure and the Pavilion remains closed for restoration and conservation. I feel privileged to have been the last artist in residence at the Bondi Pavilion . Unfortunately, when the Pavilion reopens, the Art Studio will have been replaced with Toilets & Amenities.
