The work was inspired by and created for a curated group themed exhibition Remnants of Presence. Innisfail, Far North Queensland.
One of the conceptual challenges for each artist was to approach a work with subject matter in-two-parts to show recent practice/new work development and be shown together.
The artwork Visible Traces represents renewal, journey of experiences and time passage.
It is a collective tribute to the tropical shapes, forms, patterns, and textures etc that were the initial inspirations, the visible signage. Organic, gestural and spontaneous in feel (energy), with collage and mixed media processes mingled with personal symbolism.
The work provides the viewer with facets and moments. Although ambiguous, there are sufficient visual markers to draw them in to discover further information and help them to intuitively and conceptually complete what they may perceive in the work and to sense the presence of the artist (spirit).
