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
No matter how hard the rejection is, there is always hope…
Oscillating between positive and negative thoughts to an opportunity I felt I deserved and of course when I wasn’t granted my desired outcome I plummeted into a ball of deep dark emotionally grief. Eventually the solution base side of me found strength to realise that this was a positive not a negative as the word rejection kept passing through my thoughts. Then within a fleeting moment the word rejection became a good possibility for Book 2 chapter R for Hate & Dark.
Visual Information @ Time of Creation
The contemporary artwork is a layered narrative reflecting Queen Mary Falls natural environment. Queen Mary Falls is situated in the Main Range National Park, Queensland, Australia. On Saturday 16th June 2018 I was continually photographing my response to beauty that surrounded me. In December 2020 post production commenced and one digital montage became Lot 33 in the PLACE identity Series, releasing the rejection that laid within.
