Covert Operations...

This one is in honour of a local bag lady where I grew up. She used to walk these streets and laneways with her shopping jeep

Negetive spaces

Been mucking around with cloud filled sillhouettes on and off for a little while and have combined it with an idea for a paste up or stencil taken from "The Gleaners", by Millet.

This one is inspired by a bag lady that used to live next door to us when I was a kid. She died in awfully tragic circumstances and I used to see her all the time walking the streets with her shopping buggy. This is a way to kind of honour her memory.

I like to think of these pieces as being about loss. The holes left by being (and not being) human. Sometimes tragic, and lacking dignity, squillions of forgotten people that we never knew as potentially real spaces full of mystery and meaning.
