‘Immersed’ – Perc Tucker Regional Gallery 21 Sep – 18 Nov 18
2018 Children's exhibition
Official launched by Ross Searle, 6pm, 21 September
During this current drought and change in climate, I have been forced to examine my own daily water use in every minute aspect. This investigation has lead to a response with a large solo exhibition titled Immersed and will take the viewers through my journey, reflecting our fundamental and essential daily need for water in various forms. It will encompass situations of life living in the dry tropics and will link drought, cooking, gardens, plastic in waterways, a Chinese residency, a book/movie and other daily interactions, which we can often take for granted.
To express this journey, I have created all new works from unusual yet ordinary household items such as reused; copper hot water services, a washing copper, saucepans, coffee pods, an artist book and single-use plastics. Some works will be imbued with intricate water patterns using light as a metaphor for water, another necessity that seeps into our everyday life.
