This painting was inspired by the Granny Smith Festival which is an annual event in the community of Ryde Local Government Area.
The painting was commissioned in response to this event. The painting is a combination of layers and the first layer celebrates multiculturalism, the next layer represents the Granny Smith apple which is the reason for the festival. The final layer is a white and gives a sense of a knitted layer almost blanketing the lower layers to further cement relationships between cultures.
The painting is about community and connections with the hope that it resonates with the viewer. The style is abstract and the painting is Acrylic on a Belgian Linen canvas.
