About the artwork:

The painting's oysters capture more than just their form; they reflect the intricate topographies of place and space. Each shell, uniquely shaped by nature, mirrors the idiosyncrasies of landscapes shaped over millennia - a reflection of the Awabakal land on which they rest. Their clustering hints at interconnectedness of land and sea, urging viewers to ponder our perception of the humble oyster, and serving as a metaphorical bridge between the two.
