These new paintings centre around two alpine areas of Australia; Mount Kosciuszko NSW and Mount Wellington TAS.

The alpine landscape is a recurring theme for Street. The artist is drawn not only to it’s sense of calm, beauty and awe, but also it’s loneliness and isolation- shifting and unstable. Through this landscape the artist pushes and pulls between representation and abstraction, using the pieces to explore her own personal desires, longing, loss, frustrations and guilt.
