On The Trail
On the trail is an intimate memoir of places within the remote sections of the Namadgi and Kosciuszko National Parks and both a portrait of a place and self-portrait. A personal journey that reflects about connecting to the land and belonging in a country of mixed and transplanted cultures and where landscape can act as a shared binding experience.
This recent body of work by the artist is inspired by a recent four-week Craft ACT 2023 artist residency at National Portrait Gallery and Gudgenby ready-cut Cottage in the Namadgi National Park. Combined with the artists recent explorations of the fire regeneration at Northern Kosciuszko National Park from the 2020 black summer of fires.
