"Before the Plague", 1993

Every year literally billions of locust nymphs hatch and grow to a centimetre or so, living short lives feeding birds and lizards. Every 7 to 12 years, some inexplicable combination of climate, food supply and survival pressure causes these innocuous little grashoppers to grow into 4 and 5 centimetre locusts swarming in their billions across the land. One of the camouflage series this painting was inspired by a visit to the Flinders Ranges and completed in the window of the Collins St. office of Qantas for Australia Day 1994.

Acrylics on stretched canvas 36x48, POA.
