Visual History

The major focus of The Barrack Street Project became the proliferate fancy iron work. I took my rough ideas into more detailed drawings, layered with text mimicking the form of the iron.
The initial drawings were then transformed again into a series of very large multipanelled collographs and etchings which really brought out the texture and form of the weather-worn iron.

Recording History

The worn steps to No. 68 Barrack street, Hobart. This is from my Tasmania sketchbook. At the time I was working on a fascinating project about the history of Barrack Street, where much visual evidence remains. Starting with rough sketches and detailed drawings, I then researched the archives and layered the stories of people and places within a series of Artist’s Books composed of pencil sketches, paintings and etchings.
