As a painter and photographer Michael Wolfe draws inspiration from the landscape around his home in Castlemaine, Victoria. He has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally and his work is included in public, corporate and private collections.

Let’s say you lived on the driest continent on earth where rainfall was unpredictable with drought followed by deluge; where water was a precious and valuable resource, especially as the population grows and climate change worsens.
What if you came up with a plan to buyback water harvested by farmers so this water could go back into the river systems as environmental flows. So far, so good.
Let’s say this was flood water; water that could only be collected when the land it fell on was inundated and let’s say the rain hadn’t fallen yet, it was a promise of rain, an IOU.
Let’s say this forward estimate of volumes – an unsubstantiated guess – was so grotesquely overinflated there was virtually no chance of any water going back into the river systems - ever.
A ghostly, elusive memory that feels more like a loss than an absence.
