The farm, 2021

Oil on canvas, 61x44cm

The Farm is a work I developed from a series of sketches and photographs I made on the farm at Gunnedah. It identifies a particular landscape, yet feels equally like a “non place” – difficult for the audience to identify with as there is a purposeful removal of context. In this way, the work becomes about a universal memory, not specific to one time or individual. The narrative of this painting surrounds one of isolation and remoteness, a human experience we can all relate to on some level.
