Artist's Description

Goodna, Qld, Australia
19/1/2011
For many Brisbane’ites, Goodna is referred to as a bit of a “low socio-economic” area, where people who are living on the bare bones of existence can etch out a comfortable life with what they can.

The lower end of the scale resides “Goodna Holiday Village” where many people call their home, until the flood destroyed what was left of any dreams that they may have had.

The aftermath was disastrous and so many people that had been living on the fringe, were now pushed over the edge.

The scene, in a detached sort of way, looked to me like my kids toy box full of match box cars had been upended then sprayed with mud.

Basically that’s what had happened, but in a full scale way.

I can only wonder where these people will turn to to call home now.
