overview of collaborative exhibition Sunburnt Country:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Collaborating for a second time with ceramic artist Agatha Pupaher and curator Kitty Clarke at Saint Cloche, Sunburnt Country is a 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 related to the poem, sharing stories of time in rural/ outback Australia, away from home, making a home where we found ourselves. We shared of  missing those open, rural places now as we are living in the racy, urban spaces of  New South Wales.

This exhibition combined the form and colour from the paintings with earth collected from the Broken Hill environs, to create a variety of drinking vessels, platters, vases and objects’ d’art, for a visual, tactile showing of these reflections on the landscape west of Sydney.
