Taking place on unceded Wurundjeri country, my practice rearticulates traces found in the built environment. I walk the streets with ‘abstract goggles’, collecting snippets of graffiti, remnants of its removal, marks left by construction, the way buildings sit beside each other. From these, I create drawings, paintings on supports and wall paintings that at first appear as new abstract works, yet which reveal ideas about language and the built world. My interest in language is when it is on a tightrope between incoherence and legibility. My work attempts to perform the same balancing act.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung people of the Kulin Nations, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
