The work 4 is based on the rollercoaster framework of The Wild Mouse at Luna Park, Sydney. It combines simple primary enamel colour, sitting on a complex assemblage of masonite, perspex, alupanel and metal sign. This is the smallest work in a continuing rollercoaster series and is the most detailed to date. It is as close to pure abstraction as my painting practice gets and was inspired by my love of modernism and pop art. The subject matter is linked to my childhood memories of growing up in Kirribilli where Luna Park is situated.
