“Ancient Paper People”
Mixed media, Size of work is 21cm by 26 cm unframed works on paper. $95 each
This series of work was created while in the Melbourne Covid-19 lockdown from 1st August to 13th September 2020. We saw no faces as all were masked, we went nowhere as movement in the community was highly restricted.
The series is created on antique paper from a book called “Our little Nan” that my grandma used to read to my mother and my mother read to me.
This book, so treasured by the women in our family, was now beyond repair. I decided to breathe new life into its pages by creating my impression of this incredible dystopian experience brought about by one single virus.
