David Pavich image

Pavich finds inspirations from the vastness and variety of the Australian landscape.There are the harsh, dry, arid regions of Australia, which provide an eerie atmosphere, and other times lush coastal areas can create certain feelings of paradise. The intensity of the Australian light enables the creation of dramatic moods, at times enhancing a surreal or dreamlike quality within the bounds of the canvas.
