A Tasmanian Tapestry: Bifurcated perspectives

My artworks almost exclusively feature, and reference Australian landscapes juxtaposed with man made objects or other references to human presence. Whilst based on actual locations, my works are essentially artistic constructs, staged scenes that seek to illicit and or acknowledge many different notions such as the plight of this land’s original inhabitants, colonialism, displacement, immigration, diaspora, refugees, travel and so on. And as such could be read as symbols or metaphors of the above depending on the perspective and experiences of the viewer. In this particular work ‘A Tasmanian Tapestry: Bifurcated Perspectives’ I explore the long rivalry between the inhabitants of the North and South of the island.
