It Happened on the Steps, 2020

It Happened on the Steps, 11 x 53.8 x 29.25cm inkjet prints on photo rag mounted on aluminium composite board

The strangers we pass might change our lives. They could become our dream lover, our best friend or our killer. But the moment passes and the frisson dissipates as we keep on walking. Here, the passing encounters take place on the steps of Hobart’s Treasury building.

A series of porcelain slip casts and etchings of found plastic car components. Passage explores the transition from one state of existence to another, through the life and afterlife of these now functionless objects.

The Unbearable, 2018

At points in our lives we can look back and realise we survived what seemed unbearable at the time. This work was inspired by the Fukushima tsunami of 2011.
