Kirrily Hammond

Another artist I really admire is Kirrily Hammond. Her paintings are evocative and well beyond her years... capturing the mood of that short amount of time between day and night: twilight. The urban and rural landscapes are barely visible in the dusk, but for me they have a special significance as they remind me of the many driving holidays I had with my family as a child, driving home at dusk when the lights are shimmering in the distance - we used to call it 'fairyland'. In some of the 'Gippsland twilight' series you get the feeling of driving through the rain, a foggy windscreen blurring the view through the window, the Australian diamond-shaped yellow street signs glaring at you - and I love the way they are so atmospheric and Turneresque.
