Waratah Lahy

I’m attracted to hidden things: not just things that are well hidden, but things that are more subtly obscured, disguised in plain sight. I like to glean from my everyday observations, taking time to notice the details that prove themselves to be humorous, sly, tricksy and uplifting. The choice of subject can range from a combination of colour, to a chance composition, to an interruption in the normal order of things. I’m taking time to paint moments and places that deserve more than a cursory glance, more than passing attention.
