Recollection and the rehearsal of memory echo a performance of perseverance and endurance. Memory and thought repeatedly oscillate, swinging back and forth in a regular rhythm, like the steady undulation of a wave. I honour the flow of memories through weaving and mark-making, which serve as mnemonic techniques to record gesture and form. Sustained sequence and repetition are susceptible to change through both error and chance, interrupting the cycle of unwavering rumination. These moments bear the power to halt incessant order and control, to transform the topographical features of my work, reminiscent of bodily and mountainous landscapes. The interplay between controlled parameters and randomness carries a dualistic statement of strength and vulnerability.
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.
