Artist's Description

Oil Paint and mixed media .

Walking the Turon River when the water level is low…one comes across waterworn shards of pottery washed out of the river banks from times past when the Gold Diggers used to camp on and work this river. Mostly from the mid 1800’s these shards hold the stories of those people that sometimes travelled across the world to seek an allusive fortune from the “wilds” of Australia…the area was rich in gold and was the place where the largest Gold Nugget in the world was found.
The shards from these vessels , for me, symbolise a containment of memory , that these people brought with them reflecting and clinging to the comfort of their culture and personal history’s.
Vessels of memory.
