My new solo exhibition Soak opens Saturday 15 August 3 – 5 pm at MARS, 7 James St Windsor.

I am thrilled to be showing work developed in the Kimberly and Central Australia while on a mobile arts residency with Will Heathcote. I’d love to see you at the opening, otherwise the gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am – 5pm or by appointment.

The works in the exhibition were made possible with the generous support of the Australia Council for the Arts New work and Art Start Grants.

Mobile Arts Residency

During 2013 and 2014 I spent 10 months on a mobile arts residency travelling through outback Australia and working on a cattle station. Over this period I produced a great deal of new creative material which I have been resolving into a number of bodies of works. I am excited about exhibiting these new creations, from Bovine inspired deities Vaulting on stockhorses at Murray Downs cattle station, to amphibious creatures climbing up waterfalls in the Kimberley. I was fortunate to receive the Australia council’s support for this project through the ArtStart and New Work grants.

The mobile residency included intensive new work development in remote areas and private properties, exhibitions in Brisbane, Alice Springs and Melbourne, Artsits Talks and forums, a studio residency in Alice Springs and collaborations with fellow participant Will Heathcote.

Over the residency I kept a blog oSee new works in development at https://hoteljuliet60.wordpress.com
