From the artist

"Campbell Town has always held an endearing sense of space for me, as it's the origin of my ancestors. The painting depicts a tribute to those departed, and headstones now aged and weathered, contrast against the background of nature's timeless beauty, whilst life continues for those remaining relatives. Actual ancestral history is sometimes lost over time, and the permanence of death is strongly reflected by the juxtaposition of the endangered swift parrots, in the now present place and time."
