Chris Alway - Artist
This year I am exhibiting flashbacks of what I see as I drive around my home and place of work in Mid North SA. I am adept with most mediums and subjects, but am best known for my luminous watercolour landscapes. Between real and abstract, I seize revelations that arise during the sketch-up and flow of each art work. Nature seen in layers and patterns, imparts a state of mind and reminds us to care.
