Artist's statement

This portrait of brothers, Beau and Leon, is the realisation of an endearing personal memory and an iconic moment in time to which many can relate: evenings spent with siblings, whiling away the hours till sunset, with whatever sporting activity took your fancy. A moment where any suburban setting can become transformed into a packed arena. Beau and Leon are the embodiment of a carefree age, where strong foundations of individuality have been laid, yet answers to many questions lay far ahead. One such evening we paused post-game to capture this portrait that, for me, encapsulated this moment clearly.
