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
Creating peace within…
The taxi awaits, for the next journey! Inner fear; of complexities arise. The commencement to acknowledging inner strength. It is time to ignite the fire within and leave the past behind; only now to be available for the present.
Visual Information @ Time of Creation
The contemporary artwork is a layered narrative reflecting Roslyn Bay, exploring the natural and manmade environment at midday as I take in the visual feast that surrounds me. Roslyn Bay is situated in the Central Coast Region, Queensland, Australia. On 7th September 2017 I arrived back from Great Keppel Island and I had the opportunity to walk around the marina continually photographing my response to nature and manmade language. In January 2018 post production commenced and one digital montage became Lot 24 in the PLACE identity Series, exhilarated with each step taken.
