Site Unseen

A joint monoprint exhibition with Marina van Leeuwen at Earlywork Gallery. Baigup Wetlands provided the inspiration for my unique state prints in this exhibition. Baigup is sacred to the Whadjuk Noongar people and one of the few remaining wetlands in Perth, providing sanctuary for numerous species of birds and reptiles. The remnant paperbarks, sedges and flooded gums are wonderfully evocative embodying uncanny shadow and light. Baigup possesses a haunting beauty and timelessness, compelling me to pause and reflect on all that we have and all that we stand to lose. Hover over image for details, click for slide show.

I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land where I work and live, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and pay my respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. I celebrate the continuing culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of all communities who also work and live on this land.
