Heysen Prize for Landscape 2018

Next to the Skin is a finalist in the Hahndorf Academy's 2018 Heyson Prize for Landscape. The prize encourages artists to express their deep connection with, or their deep concern for, the Australian landscape and environment.

Attachment to place is an ongoing theme that I have explored in my work through the depiction of landscapes using craft techniques. Next to the Skin is seductive and feminine, imagery of Australian wilderness landscapes is shaped to the body, creating a new girly wilderness.

Exhibition dates are from the 6th of October to the 9th of December 2018.

Pro Hart Outback Art Prize

  My work Verdant Skin has been selected as a finalist in the Pro Hart Outback Art Prize at  Broken Hill Regional Gallery . The exhibition is open from the 3rd of August to 23rd of September 2018.    Laser cut from kangaroo leather ‘Verdant Skin’ distills the outback landscape into the purely decorative. The curl of the leather is unrestrained, maintaining a relationship to the body that was underneath. The intricately cut pattern is reminiscent of lace and doilies, transforming the land into a domestic space
