Merging Identities

Solo Exhibition
Brisbane 1996

The harsh and desolate landscape of the Australian outback had a lasting effect; these works attempt to represent the experiences of the women who ventured into that environment, accompanying men who sought their fortune there

Inspired by my photographs of the textures, colours & aspects of the central Australian landscape, the works included Artists books, Wall Quilts and mounted Collage. Techniques and materials included dyed, airbrushed and painted silk & cotton fabrics, stitched with paper, photographs and found objects.
