FAR NORTH | THE ARTHOUSE | CAMPBELLTOWN | MAY 2018

This exhibition with fellow artist James Parker broadly covers the area of the state north of Port Augusta. We had both worked and travelled through this area over the years from Artist in Schools, Country Arts SA and visiting the APY Lands, as well as holidaying and camping expeditions.

However it is the open spaces, the landscape and the signs of white man’s habitation of the land that has intrigued me – what artefacts and marks they have left behind as opposed to the indigenous people that lived in harmony with this land for millennia.

This body of work has mainly been graphite pencil and coloured pencils and was exhibited unframed.
