ARTIST STATEMENT

2020  COVID 19 virus spreading like wildfire over the world. Australia created boundaries closing borders, enforcing physical boundaries of 1.5m between people.  Families were isolated from loved ones.  Galleries, Theatres, Cafes & business closed their doors.

Football teams permitted to cross borders to compete in empty stadiums

2021  Hope on the horizon for a vaccine for COVID 19.

A confirmed case of COVID 19 creates boundaries isolating Perth & Southwest from the rest of W.A.  Boundaries within boundaries.

Disaster strikes in the form of raging Wildfire sweeping across the Hills surrounding Perth. Devastating properties & homes.  Boundaries are imposed preventing people returning home.  Brave firefighters fight to save properties in extreme conditions.

I have chosen the magpie as a symbol of the football team breaking the boundaries flying through the smoke past the NO ENTRY Sign into the path of wildfire. The 2 part frame suggests the boundaries within the state.

Encaustic medium is beeswax & damar resin which is applied while heated to the substrate and reheated between layers of application.  I use various mediums and techniques to get the Desired result.
