QDOS Fine Arts 35 Allenvale Road Lorne VIC Australia
Created largely from fishing-gear amassed over many years of exploring the coastal environment of southwest Victoria, this selection of abstract sculptural and assemblage works and limited edition prints is from a number of on-going series addressing issues relating to climate change and use of resources.
20 November 2019 – 5 January 2020 Main Gallery, Yering Station VIC
The works in this solo exhibition are selected from an ongoing series, begun in 2003, focusing on the coastal environment of my home territory in southwest Victoria, Australia. All works in Undertow are made of fishing gear broken free and washed up on the beaches of Discovery Bay. Each is made of a particular collection I’ve amassed over many years of walking this sensational coastline.
Honoured to be included in this exhibition and symposium featuring the work of Australian and Indian artists, writers and researchers. This new exhibition creatively explores both customary knowledge and contemporary issues surrounding water.
I have been selected as an Artist in Residence starting in July this year. The program supports the development of new works by contemporary artists in the garden setting of Billilla historic mansion at 26 Halifax Street, Brighton, Australia.
