I am very excited about becoming a finalist in the Blake Prize for religious art.
I entered this lamb shroud I had worked into with sacred delek from Arnhem Land and silk stitching.
I called the work lamb of God (Monaro Country)
My 50 word statement to explain the religious significance of Lamb of God 2012:
In the bible the Lamb of God is sacrificed to remove the sins of the world.
This work is a decomposition print made by a lamb that died in spring 2011 amidst new life in the Monaro sheep-farming district. Sacred white ochre indicates the lamb’s role as spiritual testament.
I am happy to be a finalist again in the painting section of the art prize run by the SA Museum
I entered this work called Broken Dream finished late 2011. This painting began as a currawong shroud and I worked into the stain using the delek, garlba and gunnodjbe I collected in Arnhem Land. I also sewed into the weave using silk thread
