The clove hitch is a non-slip knot often used by farmers. Securely fastened to a rigid beam, it’s symbolic of man’s often futile attempts to restrain and tame nature. The place I’m from, Bimbi, means ‘Place of many birds’ in Wiradjuri language. As a white woman of the land I’m placed between its past and recent histories.

All Thinking is the Same
As a pink Australian referring to the past I choose the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo as representative of the Unimpressed encountering the Enlightenment. As for monotypes – they are an example of why I find prints, drawings, paintings etc. to be similar forms of action – the outcomes of my thinking put to work with all the limitations of a lifelong work in progress.

Most of us live with the traces of the dead – the personal belongings left behind when someone dies. These objects carry a history of touch, and, through accruing signs of wear, they can take on an aura. In All that remains I have depicted an inherited, personal possession. The image has been constructed using print processes that echo notions of staining, burial and recovery.

For several years I have been researching fairy tales and folklore, wherein humanity was not pitched in an eternal battle of dominance over nature, but sought to coexist with her in a realm of relative harmony and mutual respect. From these chrysalides, a series of entirely new mythological species now begins to emerge.

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.

The woven fibres of an old woman’s craftwork of shells and hessian form the background to this print. The work is a conceptual re-arrangement of memories and images interweaving the generations that have shared this cottage by the Kiah.

A Blood and Iron policy refers to any foreign policy that uses war tactics as its instrument. It remains the preferred policy of all expansionist Western nations. Whenever a contemporary nation votes and whatever party is voted for, an active policy of Blood and Iron is maintained. History is contemporary: give us new ideas; the old policies are brutal and crude.
