"Inspired by the beauty of landscape worldwide, I try to give the landscape paintings a dramatic feel, drawing the viewer into the painting. I want you to feel you are within the painting and feel the cool depths, the power charge of a incoming storm, the warmth of the sun, or the salt in the ocean air" In 2019 Meredith embarked on a new direction, a series of abstract paintings inspired by her childhood fascination with the colour and opalescence of Australian Opals. It was during this time doing abstracts and landscapes Meredith coined the words 'Australian Freestyle' to describe her painting style. Large, free flowing brushstrokes on large canvas, full of movement and feeling.
2020 the year of Covid 19 epidemic Meredith continued to paint in lockdown surrounded by immediate family. This led to a period of retreat and rethinking. Motivating factors changed, more old memories returned. A grateful appreciation of all the small pleasures in life was so much more powerful and meaningful. It led Meredith back to my love of big landscapes yet has evolved into a new series of abstract landscapes called The Colours of Texas series. For those who don’t know Texas is a farming community near Goondiwindi. Of course the works you will see in this series could easily remind you of farmland up and down the Eastern coast of Australia.
