Exhibition Statement

In a world of constant, rapid and brutal transformation, our identity can cling to a sense of belonging to a specific 'mother' or 'father' land.

This series refers to the delicate balancing act that we can experience when living in a culture different from the one we originate, the sense of uneasiness and the feelings of drift and 'otherness' it can elicit.

The restlessness that can occur as a consequence can be construed as a disadvantage or enjoyed for its liberating aspects. The works reference a variety of Western and Eastern influences: Aboriginals' myths of origins, Villeglie's torn posters, Japanese action paintings, lyrical abstraction... It also includes asemic writings and gives pre-eminence to signs, marks and drawings.
