My painting depicts a historic King Street building situated in an iconic shopping and commercial precinct within the Perth CBD. The artwork relates to the theme of explorations and reflects my personal journey wandering through the heart of our city in order to find an iconic architectural landmark that has seen the city grow up around it. In selecting the perspective and composition of the chosen architectural form, it was important to capture the interaction of complementary colours between the orange lampposts and the cornflower blue sky, the building’s unique and complex form as well as the historic gravitas that this building may convey to a passer-by.
