An amazing gift to the nation by artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne, Bundanon has been my workplace for the last twenty years. My book is a reflection on an amazing building – The Boyd Education Centre designed by Glenn Murcutt, Wendy Lewin and Reg Lark – and its place in the landscape beside the ever changing Shoalhaven River. I have used hand drawn images, ink, coloured pencil and collage to explore elements of the natural and built environment. The reverse reflects the ebb and flow of the river and symbolises also the comings and goings and changes of the people who inhabit the workplace, be they short term visitors who take away a fleeting feeling for the site or staff who are immersed in the history and ambience of Arthur’s legacy.
