Helmet is from a body of works on paper called the ‘Tin Suit’ series. These prints, drawings and collages investigate and re-interpret two icons of Australian material culture: corrugated iron and Kelly Gang armour. The Kelly Gang led my infamous bushranger Ned Kelly were infamous 19th century Australian outlaws, who wore improvised metal armour suits in their gun battles with the police.

The abandoned object has lost its function to instruct the driver. I collect broken signs from country roads and present them as works on paper, using traditional printmaking methods. My interventions reveal weathered, scarred and reflective souvenirs. Merge becomes an off-site marker that re-presents a landscape and a site.
