This new portrait of Adam Goodes, was inspired by our meeting in Sydney earlier this year. I wanted to capture the essence of Adam, his sense of humanity and the importance of his connection to his culture and the land. The mediums I used were a crucial part of this painting, for their material and conceptual reference to the land. I hand ground natural ochres, burned charcoal and included sand and acrylic paint on linen.
