"This October through to November marks my time as Artist in Residence at Regional Victoria's Lon Retreat.During this time, I planned to work remotely, exploring Lon's 200 acres of rural and conservation land, creatingwork in response to my immersion in this magical environment."
"Instead, I conjured feelings of retreat, escapism and wandering from my home studio in Black Rock. Throughwhat became a Virtual Residency; I explored notions of flight and dreaming through the imagery of sea birds diving, I considered the natural pull between the moon and the sea through the layering of tone andtexture, and I created bridges and pathways that stretch out across the ocean like piers leading into theunknown. Focusing on the reverie and inspiration we seek outside of ourselves. Ready, at any given moment to flee our boundaries after spending months in lockdowns."
‘Incantation’ is a ten-piece body of work that dissects the duality within the balance of escapism, whether real orconjured. This residency is guided by the alluring charm of longing to be elsewhere.
