Ship of Dreams
I respond emotively to colour, texture and the symbolism of everyday objects I find in printed media.
I chose newspaper from 1929 and modern magazines to layer the connections I feel with Australia to create my 'Ship of Dreams' series.
The artwork is circular like a port-hole, an opportunity to view and share someone else’s world.
As an island Australia began it's connection with the world through the sea.
Travel is often seen as a luxury where new cultures enamour us and countries stake a place in our hearts, but a journey can also sever relationships between families and take us away from what we call 'home'.
