Songs of Solastalgia
About the artwork:
This work mines memories of home on the farm near Jerrys Plains - now an open cut coal mine. I sketch, explore and process the remembered fragments of elements of nature, objects, intersections, spatial dimensions, perceptions, histories and narratives in a connected visual pattern. I still call this place home.
