Artist Statement

The northern headland of the Elliott River is my new home. This work is a conversation through markmaking about the diverse natural, cultural and elemental forces that continue to change and shape where I’m living. A perfect line of planted casuarinas perches atop red volcanic soil, underpinned by a coastline of basalt rock flung in messy patterns from an ancient volcano. Walking out to see these views each morning produces a surge of joy and disbelief within me… do I really live here? And this daily routine has bought a utopian dreamlike quality to this piece with it’s perfect line of leaning casuarinas, juxtaposed against tumbledown undergrowth and the jumble of rocky tidelines. Elliott Heads is both caressed and scarred by water and wind – literally the winds of change that will continue to extend it’s diversity well beyond my time here.
