Description

I had the opportunity to have an artist residency in Dubbo, NSW. I really enjoyed and was inspired by the Macquarie River- which was in flood- with majestic river gums gracing its banks. This contrasted significantly against the regional city hub of Dubbo, where at its centre was Victoria Park, beautifully preserved and manicured in the pastoral tradition. With a plucky heroine as the protagonist, I puzzled over our contradictory relationships to nature and saw road signage as contemporary attempts to continue to preserve and as a reflection on one’s point in life.
