'The light in this country, in particular Western Australia, is one of the strongest and most influential elements which surrounds us and our environment, and it transforms the landscape at every hour or minute. It has been described as a 'diamond light'. It’s sharp, harsh and hard, but also beautiful through all the seasons. It can wash out colours in the landscape at midday but transforms them ever stronger and more vivid towards sundown. It can render shadows darker and highlights brighter. The light therefore is a subject I pursue in my study of this land in my paintings. It’s what influences our moods and what we have in common in any day. This light is also something we all share.’ Douglas Kirsop 2023

Since 1985 Douglas has journeyed many times to the north of Australia to paint the Pilbara, Kimberley, Murchison and Northern Territory with the North West remaining an endless source of inspiration for his arts practice. His work is held in numerous public and private collections.
