" ALONG THOSE LINES "
2010 first solo exhibition
There are lines in our everyday…
those we see, those we follow, those we create, in the direction we take;
and those we leave behind - to show where we've been.
Then there are those lines - cultural lines back to our heritage;
invisible lines of communication which unite us;
and lines of ignorance which divide, keeping us separated and alone;
Construction lines that build and lines of destruction;
yet emotional seam lines that show we are joined creatively together.…
The work in this exhibition has been inspired by the Lines I see, every day.
As well as the mapping lines of our early exploration and colonial settlement
and the symbolic celtic lines of my heritage and those of the Indigenous Aborigine.
Lines have been visual reminders and channels of spiritual connection
which I have been guided by, challenged and defined.
Lines have led me to where I am … to where I belong … here and now … thank God.
