ARTIST STATEMENT
In recent years, I have regularly observed and sketched Australasian Darter birds (Anhinga novaehollandiae) at a local nature Reserve in the Dandenong Ranges.

These birds spend a lot of time drying their wings out in the sun: A Moment of Pause.

As a child, I spent a lot of time in this reserve, exploring nature: A Place of Belonging. The geometric patterns incorporated in this series, echo the glazed roof tiles of Burgundy – a distinctive architectural feature of the region, dating back to the 14th century in Burgundy, France.

Throughout my adolescence in Dijon, I was fortunate to consider these complex designs daily, on specific buildings and architectural landmarks (referenced in each title). Another place of personal belonging.

For Anhinga Saint-Bénigne Dijon 13/12 and Anhinga Pierreclos 11/12 the motif colours are recognisable across the following locations in Dijon (but not limited to): l’Hôtel Aubriot, l’Hôtel de Voguë, l’Hôtel Guillaume-Frasans, l’Église Plombières-lès-Dijon, Cathédrale Saint-Bénigne.

Each sculpture features a mix of European and Japanese antique ware including purposely hand-crafted and painted ceramic pieces, at times requiring 3 kiln firings. Upon closer inspection, you will spot the odd fish, bird, koala and horse…

As a dual citizen of France and Australia, birds reflect my personal narratives of migration, belonging and displacement, while the use of horses in my work evokes strength. These sculptures are personal totems in the shape of an Australian Darter. A representation of my double cultural belonging.
