practice for me involves my experiences of the place where I live.To be among the people and objects and
natural forces that make a place is paramount to the pleasure of living and to
my way of working.
living in a new place the expectation is that there will be a phase of
strangeness due to new perspectives on otherwise familiar aspects of
living.Everything is different yet
familiar: interactions with people, housing, cooking, moving among objects that
make up the landscapes and towns, and of course, the weather.
life involves the constant crossing of boundaries or thresholds of experience.The focus of my work on King
Island will be the exploration through drawing/painting of what I perceive as
the crossing of boundaries that traditionally delineate built and natural
intention is, through my experiences of Southwest Victoria (where I live) and King Island, to
make drawings in various environments including that of the studio.From these works I'll create further work
in my studio in Warrnambool.An
exhibition of these subsequent works is planned for 2013 at Scope Galleries
(Warrnambool) and in the Cultural Centre, King Island. Victoria Dunn
