Chris Osborne

As a lone kayaker slices through the mirror surface of Dunns Swamp, the perfect reflection of the surrounding sandstone cliffs is destroyed. The kayaker’s disturbance of the water slowly flattens, and the picture-perfect reflection is soon rebuilt. Then wind fractures the reflection, and the cycle of destruction and recreation is played out once more.

About the artist

Osborne captures the fine details of nature through his years spent kayaking, hiking and cycling in the Australian bush. Osborne believes for a better understanding of nature you must immerse yourself in the environment you’re trying to paint.
