Art, Identity & Place

How wild places, deep time and archaeology inform my contemporary art process

Raku Sculpture Elephants at Muddy’s She-shed

I couldn’t resist taking home with me one of these elephant sculptures when we had a tee pee firing at an informal opening of Muddy’s She-shed during the Surf Coast Shire Arts Trail.

The sculptor, Maggie Jean, a ceramicist/sculptor and now printmaker also has a small elephant sculpture collection that caught my eye this morning. Displayed together they appeared to trumpet ‘conversation’ to each other. I added my sculpture to the couple for fun.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
