Summary Wind in the Billows is metaphoric of how time and place intersects with life. I wanted to capture how our journey through life can be sometimes as surprising as the way the wind might blow a dress. Being snared on the branch of a tree in Geelong, is how I feel having ended up living in Geelong myself after growing up in New-Zealand and living in many parts of the world. The colonial style dress was made with layers of steel wire mesh and painted with enamel paint to replicate linen. Colonial style encompasses my own identity with Australian and New-Zealand female ancestors, and the heritage aspects of Geelong. These are strong factors in me being able to have a connection to Place away from my homeland.
Notes Sculpture exhibited as part of ‘Artists in The Gardens’ exhibition of 12 large scale sculptures from the Arthouse Collective Inc. The exhibition was held at the Geelong Botanic Gardens (Geelong, Vic.), from 31st January 2005 until 5th December 2006.
