Men At Work

Men At Work

This exhibition grew out of a period of intense focus on the creation of In Praise of Australian Women.

To restore equilibrium, my creative efforts were directed to the activities of Australian men - Timber-getters, Fettlers and Drovers.

I enjoyed the freedom and challenges of a minimalist approach and used recycled, grey woollen blankets on hessian bags - in keeping with the ‘wagga’ rug tradition of Australian bush men working hard and living rough.
