Where the River has been

2014

The floodplain work, or 'Where the river has been' came out of a trip to Condobolin and the Lauchlan river.  Fallen River red gum branches from the rivers edge wrapped and woven with silver wire stand on their ends, bones and stones in their tangle.  The silver wire speaks of the Australian bush, the gum leaves silvery in the dry and wire for the spindly fence lines that drape a fibrous matrix over our landscape.  The flood comes and goes and leaves it's trace.  The memory of what has been is seen caught in the branches, wrapped and woven in a curious bundles.
