Statement

"My most powerful link with Lake Hindmarsh is the Wimmera River I grew up on it, left and have returned. In the good years it fed the massive lakes further inland, Hindmarsh and Albacutya. Now they are both empty and the river is a series of disconnected waterholes. Current drawings and video work continue a response to the tensions in my relationship to the Wimmera and these sites, embedded in a Lutheran upbringing and the ongoing paradox of occupying a landscape that is spatially expansive yet difficult in its austerity."
