Recovering roots: The timeless land
“Recovering Roots …” (Hazelhurst Community Gallery, May 30-June 11, 2014) is a collaborative exhibition with Christopher Lawrie.

'The Timeless Land' series presents photo-assemblages, named after a 1941 novel by Eleanor Dark. Contemporary landscape photographs are printed onto vintage book pages taken from classic Australian literature, and juxtaposed with texts from historical documents. How have interpretations from literature and historical documents influenced our perspectives on Australian landscape and culture? Is there possibility of a response to and connection to land beyond these cultural constraints?
