Collecting the Woollamia shrouds

I removed the bodies of the rosella and ringtail possum to reveal their bodily stains keeping the dried husks as painting subjects later.

Winter Rosella from Nerriga

June 21st, 2014  |  Published in practice  |  Leave a comment

On the way back from staying with my family I found a freshly killed rosella, an eastern one without a tail.
I brought the limp body to the Woollamia home and lay them near the ringtail.
The cute Finch couple that live there watched me.
There they lay to decompose in the Woollamia bushland.

New Shroud Project

I have just made the decision to resume the shroud project in my new location.
There are different species hit by vehicles and a different environment in which to host the installation.
This beautiful male ringtail possum with a lovely thick winter coat and white tipped tail offered himself last night, tragically.
He is from Woollamia.
A local kookaburra watched me lay him in state.
