the space between us grows
Henry Jones Art Prize, shortlisted Oct 2019
This piece is a thematic and visual evolution of an earlier piece by a similar name. It is an abstracted exploration of connection and disconnection between people and place, alluding to the tension of mediating heritage and identity. It belongs within a body of work which riffs on a colour palette that references the colours of the Australian flag to echo the dissonance of a personal Australian identity which includes a diverse cultural heritage.
