Ascent - Fishnets Pathways and Paddocks Gallery: Paintings on Canvas *NEW* Description: After finishing my PhD, I was lucky enough to have the wonderful experience of growth through my travels to Kerala, India. As in most countries across the world, the happiness through cultural sharing, the appreciation of place and cultural and faith integration, contrasted strongly with experiencing the sadness of being exposed to the dualities of life. This became evident through the different social classes, poverty and wealth, the healthy and disabled and the exposure to clean or filthy water. In spite of this, the inlets, wide beaches, ocean and riverways were common elements of joy in both our home places. Memories of throwing fishing nets into the waterways of the tablelands, the Topsy and Mitchell Rivers and the many lagoons as a young person gave me such a deep connection to the fishermen and women and their surrounds where we stayed in Kerala. The waterways were their life’s blood just as the tablelands and our regional waters are ours. The fields of produce and the spiritual mindsets were additional common connections. This work offers the viewer the warmth of shared happy experiences as well as the environmental warmth and peace of places we experience.
