Artists statement

The works are material explorations of the controversial history and culture of land and water in Australia, the movement of people across sea and soil to occupy and exploit the land, the precarious state of river systems and natural environment. I use natural and locally found materials, carved, bound, thatched, and recoated, to construct intricate sculptures. They take the form of boats or other vessels, rolling or floating through arid landscapes. I also map these altered landscapes by tracing tracks and topography with large flat works on paper. The work questions attitudes to country, interrogating tensions between land use and land care.
