CURRENT SERIES

Adventures of Dog and Girl

Dog, the eternal wanderlust; everywhere wandering. Dog is the restless rover, the rambler, the voyager. Fuelled by discontent and desire, dreaming of future fortunes, Dog is always on the move. Girl holds tight our cultural memory; she garners and gathers generations past. Girl grows heavy with the tales of yesteryear's adventurous ways. She wistfully dreams of one place, one belonging. Girl, the gleaner, picks her way through the remnants left scattered in Dog's wake. She is burdened with reminiscence, unable to rest, there is no respite. Forever tied to Dog's roving ways, Girl slips into place. Then, one morning sky, Girl wakes to Dog's distant heels. And for the first time, uncluttered of time and place, Girl turns to look in on herself, and there she finds what she has always been searching for.

The series will be exhibited as part of the 'Everywhere World' exhibition at WAG Upstairs - Woolloongabba Art Gallery, 613 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba, Qld, from June 27th to July 8th, 2017.
