The works for the exhibition Evidence were fabricated in response to found incomplete objects. I drew inspiration from the use of fragments to communicate a particular history in religious reliquaries and museum artifacts. I looked to repair and reconstruct fragmentary evidence to present new meaning. The works emerged from research undertaken while on an artist residency at Bundanon in 2009. I was inspired by the location, the bush and Arthur Boyd's Nebuchadnezzar paintings, I looked to find evidence of the mythological beings Boyd depicted.
These are some of the works from the exhibition
