PLACE identity Series
Land Acknowledgement @ Time of Custodian
‘In the spirit of reconciliation the PLACE identity Series acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.’
Place Statement @ Time of Conception
Is a contemporary visual approach to digitally photographing and montaging the landscape to express the psychological space within a designated place of identity. I continually aim to acknowledge and understand the land we are upon and my personal response of the stimuli that surrounds me with each step taken.
Personal Narrative @ Time of Capture
Lost and confused…
My shadow self arrives in all its grandeur and the reflection in the water looks isolated. My shadow senses the quicksand rising trying to find the personal trigger so the struggle can end.
Visual Information @ Time of Creation
The contemporary artwork is a layered narrative reflecting Tin Can Bay’s natural and manmade environment. Tin Can Bay is a town situated in a natural sheltered inlet in the Wide Bay-Burnett region, Queensland, Australia. On 5th July 2015 I visited and explored the community, the wild life and the trees that adorn the land continually photographing my response to nature and manmade language. In March 2016 post production commenced and one digital montage became Lot 13 in the PLACE identity Series, understanding my internal dialogue searching for answers.
