Embarking on a project with the intent of painting site specific subject matter whilst camping alngside the canvas, James Giddy drove to the wheatbelt and painted his first watertanks in February 2017. Documenting the process as he went. The project began to create conversation and further watertanks and rural projects began to evolve, adding something beautiful, to distract from something bland.
This project is ongoing and Giddy continues to work throughout the countryside, developing relationships with the local communities by bringing an uplifting energy and change to their towns. The project is very much a personal journey, enriching the artists practice through experience, whilst providing a positive impact on someone elses everyday experience.
