ABC Art Bites: MIRROR Series 1, Episode 1
I journeyed back to Wytaliba, a community just outside of Glen Innes, NSW, where I was born, to piece together the fleeting moments of my parents relationship and to find the mud brick home that they built together when I was a baby.
I created two self-portraits in this beautiful & haunting place. One in the river where my mother used to swim when she was pregnant with me and another in the mud brick house which my parents built with their bare hands.
Stepping foot in my old house, which has now been reclaimed by nature, was a sad and beautiful thing. This self portrait for me was a collation of all of my feelings about this place.
A huge huge thank you to Producer Kate Paul, Director Brodie Poole, Cameraman Dave May & the ABC for this extraordinarily incredible and once in a lifetime experience, one I will treasure in my memory & heart for always.
