My practice focuses on the appropriation and translation of textures and fragments collected from walks along shorelines.
Fragments of King
I walk shorelines and edges of islands. I walk where the water meets land. I walk. I document. I walk some more and I collect fragments that have been placed there by wind or tide. Through this form of mapping, I create a collective conversation of an island, rather than a single textural focus which has no belonging.
Through the isolation to beach comb and map the coastline of King Island through an artist residency, I created body of work entitled Fragments of King. This series has developed from textures of the Paper Nautilus shell, a shark fin, whale's tooth, driftwood and kelp.
