I recently revisited Loftia Park in the Adelaide Hills; I was at school nearby when the 1980 Ash Wednesday fire began. Bushfire has featured in my work before, but always with a focus on regrowth. After seeing that forest still scarred with black, I concentrated on the loss that others experience, the compassion I feel, but also the fear that the black landscape will again surround me.

The asymmetric, avian leaf of the Mountain Ash has become a recurring symbol in my work. When a blade of grass is placed through a small slit along the central vein, it becomes a sword; like those of the games of my childhood in the Adelaide Hills. I can carve cartographic lines within their shapes, transcribing a venerated memory.
