This collage simultaneously depicts the familiar and unfamiliar. The face is concealed, contradictory to common perception, to enhance viewers connection to the human form. By removing the temptation to identify the individual draws focus toward familiarity, what joins us. This composition aims to explore communal joy, a collective experience one of which most of us can relate. How our bodies are in environment, this figure sits cross-legged by the Lake Wyangan side

‘Reach’ is informed by the observation, experience and documentation of intuitive movements between a contemporary dancer with the surrounding burnt out pine forest. The subject body mimics the fallen burnt trees in the background.
This artwork investigates the perceptive stages between what is seen as ‘real’ and ‘unreal’ within antipodean urban/suburban contexts. This work explores dichotomies between ‘the everyday’ as lived by the urban majority, and their experience and perception of the supposedly ‘natural’ landscape. This process affords image-based ‘smearing’ to create a ‘new’ liminal landscape.

A study of archival photography
The collection is a collage depicting the Oasis Gardens. The Oasis, from what history shows, was a much loved place for community to enjoy a collection of local and exotic flora along side a range of natural artefacts. The design pictures these relics as a tribute to Sunnybank’s history. The colour palette reflects the tones of the ‘butterfly and shell collection’.
