An exhibition of prints by members of PressNorth Printmakers
The Vault Perc Tucker Regional Gallery
20 January - 1 March 2018
My arts practice is inspired by the speculative intersections and connections of humanity, together with the paradoxes of difference between each other and being alone, and how it manifests through language, culture and music
I aim to create poetic relationships between heaviness and lightness, between the language of the materials and forms.
Lately I have become intrigued with the rhizomatic model of Giles Deleuzian ‘s philosophy. A philosophy which opens new ways of “seeing” the landscape and life, suggesting there are multiple and shifting points of connection across time and space.
Contemplating these modes of inquiry in Interconnected Precious Moments Dreaming I seek to express fleeting moments captured in the continuous flow of changes.

Echoing Feelings towards Harmony 2018 Collograph with mixed media 28 x 38 cm
My work was inspired by Bill Neidjie’s wonderfully informative book Story about Feeling.
Bill Neidjie was one of the remarkable elders who in the earlier part of the 21st century broke with tradition to mediate Aboriginal knowledges for a broader audience, primarily for the younger indigenous generation, however also for balanda or non-indigenous people.
I was fascinated to read of the differences of the inner or sacred and the outer or esoteric aspects of their life and how it influences their customs and rituals and permeates their respect and feeling for country and all living things, Echoing Feelings towards Harmony.
