My practice operates within the grey area between external and internal realities. In collecting disparate and diverse images then meticulously reconstructing them, my practice alludes to a narrative of events, one that is concerned as much with the fiction as with the realities that they are extracted from. For this residency, which will be during the summer months in Southern France, I will be working on a body of paintings that I will be exhibiting in early 2019 at Gertrude Glass House in Melbourne.
This project is important and necessary to my practice because it will allow me to focus on my practice for almost 2 months, uninterrupted. I’m asking for financial assistance because without it, stepping away from my life to focus on my art for 8 weeks straight would be an impossibility.
With this financial assistance I will be able to pay for flights as well as art supplies. The works that I will make during the residency will be exhibited at Gertrude Glasshouse, Melbourne.
