The Gardens of Stone

2020

A WORD FROM THE ARTIST – In 2015 I completed a short residency at The Big C Gallery in Bilpin, NSW. Yuri and Rae Bolotin introduced me to the Gardens of Stone. The Aboriginal occupation of this place dates back at least 11,000 years. It is a special place that we must preserve, Activities such as off-road driving and mining can destroy this heritage. I want in this work to at least begin to draw attention to this magical place. I have used discarded woolen blankets, rubbish I suppose from our affluent society, to draw attention, as Charles Darwin said to: “Nature which is power incessantly ready for action and is immeasurably superior to man’s feeble efforts as the works of nature are to those of Art.”
