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.
