'Mirror' Self-Portrait #1, 2017

'Mirror' Self-Portrait #1, 2017

ABC Art Bites: MIRROR series

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 one in the mud brick house.

Stepping foot in my old house, which has now been reclaimed by nature, was a sad and beautiful thing. This self portrait for me is a collation of all of my feelings about this place.
