Artist Statement

Drawing-with

 

These drawings and video respond to the key themes of belonging, recovery, resilience and regeneration through drawing-with trees that were damaged in reserve land by the Sarabah bushfire.

 

I have walked this place many times; before and after the bushfire. I adopted a walking approach to draw in-place that positioned the trees and myself within the process of creating the drawing.

 

The marks made on paper are an intra-action with the more-than-human as I traverse the reserve, and as the trees and I meet to make the marks on paper. Through this becoming there is a pedagogy of intra-action and regenerative drawing-with between
the more-than-human and the human.

I acknowledge and pay deep respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which I walk and draw. This land always was and always will be Wangerriburra land.
