: Sons of the Soil

3 Mar - 27 Apr 2017

SONS OF THE SOIL celebrates the stories of her family and friends, in particular the dust-tinged tales of Australia’s men of the land.

This body of work captures the allure of farm life, both on and off the paddock. Where movements are dictated by the weather not the days of the week. Where work and play revolve around the seasons. And where fond memories are forged amid the everyday.

Her paintings are inspired by the innocence of a bygone era, one most of us can still remember.

Old photos are a constant source of inspiration and give us a window into another time – a time when we sought to capture those magic moments. These frozen moments in time form a series of select snapshots of those that brought us to where we are today.
