The ‘Illumination’ works began when I was an artist-in- residence at Hill End in 2010. The archetypal Australian landscape that I encountered was overwhelmingly felt, along with the colonial histories imbued within. My ancestry is strongly connected to this region, dating to pre-1850 when my ancestors arrived to secure pastoral leases on ‘uncharted’ land. These personal family histories, the broader history of the region and the European idealism projected upon this landscape became the focus of this new work.
