Cyclone Larry ‘decapitated’ 90% of Silkwood houses (Queensland) -

Here is Esther (circa 82 years) carrying furniture and cleaning out the childrens charity furniture store.

Inspiration from a woman twice my age. Already in the thick of it with her own home affected by the cyclone she continues her volunteer work following ’Larry’s’ path of destruction.

Deanna Maich is currently living in the Atherton Tablelands and this has been the inspiration for her latest works. Her surrogate children, two kelpies are often muses but also the folk and landscape she encounters in her day to day living. Maich, a linguist and traveller enjoys word and image play and often incorporates quirky juxtiposing in her works, some of which are on display at James Cook University for the year 2012

    Very wonderful and creative artwork. The combination of normal portrait, and abstract like animals and landscape, creates the wonderful, fun, and captivating image. Wonderful composition and perspective.
