SUNBURNT COUNTRY offers a personal perspective on the colours of the Australian Outback. From Broken Hill, to Wentworth on the Murray River and the Clare Valley in South Australia I interpret the land and the experience in oil on canvas and paint glazes on stoneware in collaboration with ceramic artist Agatha Pupaher..
The sold out exhibition concluded February 2018. Please find at the foot of this page, a brief image gallery from the exhibition.
Collaborating for a second time with ceramic artist Agatha Pupaher and curator Kitty Clarke at Saint Cloche, 37 MacDonald Street, Paddington, NSW, Australia, SUNBURNT COUNTRY is a contemporary visual expression of a well known phrase from the poem My Country, written in 1908 by a youthful Dorothea Mackellar. She wrote a love song to her home in rural New South Wales while she was away with her father in England. Agatha and I both had related to the poem, with stories of spending time in rural/ outback Australia, away from home, making them home, and then of missing those places now in the urban spaces of New South Wales.
