Vertigo, 2014, oil on canvas, 121 x 90 cm.
A fear of heights has always been with me, as a child I couldn’t go near an edge without the terror of falling. As a young adult I worked on this by learning how to rockclimb in the Blue Mountains and fell in love with snow skiing and still enjoy steep awesome slopes.
At National Art School we were asked to do a work based upon our fears. Vertigo above is the result, and the below work was my study that examined the emotion.
