This series began as a concept that was developed for Naidoc the previous year raising the question Who made you who you are today? After I completed production on the film I began to really reflect on this question seeking out my parents who were living at Blanche Harbour. The discussions that followed were immensely illuminating, whilst providing me a truly honest narrative of love, loss and the pursuit of survival.

I’d always felt a darkness within me. A darkness I chose never to look at. Creating these thirteen works turned out to be a true self investigation while hanging them on the wall proved to cathartically export this darkness, leaving me with a sense of stillness and peace. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to be alone with myself and yet being in this space now has opened a whole new world of opportunity or experience. I’ll always honor this gift throughout my practice as it extends into my life.
