Artist Statement

This installation encompasses ‘Parachute Cords’ and framed works on paper creating a mini exhibition entitled STRINGS.  Its display is contained within the front windows of Port Jackson Press Print Gallery and is part of many events celebrating Print Council of Australia’s 50 years in Print.

The braided sheath, twisted and strong paracords click for more info have carried and delivered great post to read objects of love, offerings, relief, supplies, and both personnel and animals in combat for decades.  The imagery in my framed works on paper scattered under the suspended pendulous strings focus on the objects that have been carried over the years. Loose sculptural objects will also feature and the backdrop to my installation is a new large format forest print taking the audience deep into winter’s solstice.
