Here are some of my works from A Bright and Savage Land, a group show put on by h.ART in Lobethal.
The series is called Dangerous Rubbish and is about feral animals and the damage they do to the environment. Perhaps humans could be termed feral animals as they do the most damage of all.
The glass in ‘Dangerous Rubbish’ was found in public parks. The engravings are of skulls of feral animals.
‘Owning Up’ is about my addition to the feral cat population. Engraved ink on plaster on canvas. Pity my grammar/spelling wasn't more betterer. The poem is after a fragment in Christopher Smart's poem Jubilate Agno. It is called For I Will Consider My Cat Jeoffry and you can read it here
‘Breeding Like’ (ink and acrylic on paper) speaks for itself, but could it be a metaphor for human overpopulation?
A Bright and Savage Land is a varied show with a strong emphasis on landscape, but lots of other stuff too, including fibre arts, sculpture and a great little pop-up shop. You have one more weekend (26th and 27th August) to see the show. There will be music on Sunday afternoon.
And next door in the soon-to-be Lobethal Woollen Mills Museum, I have another group of works that you can see some of on my Instagram feed. An installation of (mostly) Self Portraits there from me.
The shows are at the Onkaparinga Woollen Mills, buildings 20 and 21, Main Street, Lobethal.
