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
Feeling the enormity of change…
Understanding different thought perspectives as blurred boundaries become repetitious. Mountains galore yet so far away that finding a solution felt unreachable.
Visual Information @ Time of Creation
The contemporary artwork is a layered narrative reflecting Mt Coonowrin natural and manmade environment. Mt Coonowrin is part of the Glass House Mountains situated in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland, Australia. On Monday 1st October 2018 I was continually photographing my response to beauty that surrounded me. In December 2020 post production commenced and one digital montage became Lot 35 in the PLACE identity Series, thinking of the present knowing that is only a moment.
Quote @ Time of Completion
A snippet from Meat Loaf’s song, (Objects In The Rear View Mirror Appear Closer Than They Are), ‘But it was long ago, and it was far away.’
