Australian Touring Exhibition: We Are All One Under The Skin

The Boy Monk Opposites Korean Rice Paddy Workers

As an artist I have decided that it is important to see Australia in the context of the world - we are all part of a one - and we need to know, and understand, the other parts of the world. The ability to have common causes such as ecology is often spoken about, but the world is at risk of losing some of its most original and precious practices in art making.

Traditionally, art making is socially based and I fear traditional ways are slipping away quietly while our world is being loudly dominated by digital imagery and social media. In my work, I like to work with the humble pen to build up layer upon layer, progressing from mind-to-line onto paper. I enjoy working and re-working each piece to capture the true essence of cultural beauty, to share the reflections of the traditional people I have had the privilege to live with over many years.

My regional Australia touring exhibition 2013-2015 titled: We Are All One Under the Skin, is a culmination of on-site work developed through ethnographic research internationally to the end of 2012. The exhibition will include the cross-cultural mediums of Australia-ochre’s, Turkey-prayer and ritual, China-ink & brush work, Egypt-papermaking and native materials, Barcelona-ochres and printmaking. As part of my touring exhibition, I will also be running community art workshops. The aim of each workshop is to introduce Australian regional audiences to the cultural ways and traditions of the wider world, whilst placing our identity as Australians within the context of a world of diverse cultures.

All works shown on this page are: 150mm x 180mm. They can be hung individually or in a wrap-around format.
