The Rivers Way


Preliminary voluntary research is under way for a solo exhibition to open on 24th July at Murray Bridge Regional gallery SA,with the results of a residency which is part of "This Is A River"- a series of artist residencies along the river between April and September 2015.

Its autumn and the collection of swards of coloured leaves to dry ready for work beginning in June, reminds me of how the muddy autumn waters look, with the river in spate and the surface troubled.

Here Old Mans Beard from near Milang has been twisted into rope.

I am studying, photographing and recording movement and sound from the Riparian zone of the river's edge with a view to creating an immersive work.

One of the challenges for me as an outdoor site specific artist is to work with the arid sensory nature of the gallery.
