William Street aglow
- Further information
William Street aglow captures the pulsating energy of daily life in central Sydney. There is a sense of frenzied activity as far as the eye can see: the city never rests. This painting is one of a series of twilight street scenes. I am enchanted by that brief phase in the evening, during which the urban landscape takes on a strange, almost fairytale quality. Neon signs create an ethereal glow and car headlights cast a pearly sheen on the ground. In William Street aglow I aim to convey that sense of change as the city adjusts to the fading light.
