Phil Page and I have a joint exhibition opening Wednesday 7 February, ANCA Gallery. The works I am exhibiting are early studies for my MPhil project at the ANU School of Art & Design. They explore what painting and the painting process can reveal about the lived experience of place. The project centres around the Northbourne housing complex in Canberra that is going to be demolished by the end of 2019.
'Yeti on the Run #2', a collaboration with Ursula Frederick, is a finalist in the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award 2017. You can view the full series, that was first exhibited in 'Beauties and Beasts' at Belconnen Arts Centre, on Ursula's website.
Curated by Caren Florance and Jen Webb. Featuring Caren Florance, UK Frederick, Katie Hayne, Nicci Haynes, Sarah Rice, Jen Webb and Jordan Williams.

Opening event: 6pm Wednesday 24 August.
Reading event: 6pm Tuesday 6 September. ‘Material Poetics’ a poetry reading related to the exhibition, with Melinda Smith (MC), Sarah Rice, Katie Hayne, Jen Webb and Jordan Williams.
