From the viewpoint of the figure “me”, the scene depicts stars behind (far right of image) which represent the night-time view from our old home in Geelong. The flower is a rose that represents my mother and is always with me. The figure is looking towards shapes that suggest the Adelaide hills, directing me forward. My own life experience is usually the catalyst for my work, but my intention is always to make a space for the viewer to step into and reflect on their own journey, significant memories from the past and what’s ahead.
