Year of the Bird exhibition

Birds have featured throughout the shroud project creating ghostly images.
The exhibition is at Maitland Regional Gallery

Blessing 2011

'Blessing' magpie, rabbit skin glue, ochre, charcoal, aquarelle and cotton stitching on canvas

Sewing or adding ochres changes the representation.
This is a delicate negotiation, adding one element may detract from the indexical power of the bodily stain.

Blake Prize

September 23rd, 2012  |  Published in exhibitions, practice  |  2 Comments

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)

'Lamb_of_God'_2011-12

'Lamb_of_God'_2011-12

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.
