walking home

Walking home was an exhibition of prints shown at grahame galleries + editions, Brisbane in October 2010.

Walking Home is a metaphorical return journey to Gippsland, the place of my childhood. The images are drawn from the intersection of two narratives of Gippsland: the myth of Lohan Tuka, the white woman reputedly held captive by the Kurnai tribes in the 1840s and the story of my settler family’s arrival at the same time.The prints operate as imaginary maps for my journey, maps which record the places where particular events from the narratives occurred or could have occurred. The places named in the titles suggest resting points on my way home.
