Quiet Connections

FEBRUARY - APRIL 2012

Started 2012 with an exhibition at the Orange Regional Gallery called 'Quiet Connections' (26th February – 1st April). The exhibition involved three artists working with different mediums and joining forces for a collaborative print project. Ros Auld – ceramics, Carmen Ky – paintings, Tracy Luff – fluted cardboard assemblages. We made the collaboration in my print workshop.

Solo Exhibition ‘Prehistoric Resonance’

NOVEMBER 2012

This show will be at Charles Hewitt Gallery, Sydney: 8th November – 26th November 2012
These paintings reference the prehistory of Lake Mungo and the ongoing erosion that continues to reveal ancient fossils. As part of the Willandra Lakes system, Lake Mungo's Sandy desert was once under water. The erosion of hard sand at Mungo has revealed a vast burial ground and the most ancient human remains on the continent as well as the prehistoric giant ancestors of our kangaroos, wombats and emus. The texture of these paintings helps invoke the geographical layering and fossils of this eerie ice age landscape. The colours and light recall a place of power and haunting beauty.
