Included in the recent group exhibition ‘The way you came’, at Arthouse Gallery, Sydney, bringing together a selection of the gallery’s stable of artists, exploring the notion of landscape.  The exhibition contemplates ideas such as the continual return to and rekindling of the past in order to move forward through to the present.

“Meditative and transformative, the works spring as much from the physical topographies as they do from the psychological, emotional and spiritual affiliations. They function as revised narratives..”

“no way to make sense of a world that wouldn’t let you pass

except to call an end to the way you had come,” (an excerpt from David Whyte, Pilgrim, 2012)

In September 2016 I contributed a work to Drawing Conversations: Exhibition at the National Art School, Sydney. School staff members invited fellow practicing artist to exhibit alongside them a work exploring the notion of drawing. I was invited by the painter Deborah Marks. There were notable connections and relationships between each lecturer and invitee artist. It was an interesting exhibition, with a diverse range of interpretations and applications of drawing, ranging from videos, sculpture, installations.  My ceramic work, ‘Calligraphic marks of the land’, a hand built ceramic piece, explored the relationship between the two dimensional mark making on the surface of a three-dimensional form. Deborah Marks figurative painting on board, ‘Irreconcilable Differences’, reveals strong mark making in oil paint, an internal landscape which evolves from the darkness of the boards surface.
