This work results from gathering discarded materials from the landscape over a long period. The fence posts are virtually heritage objects and probably 100 years old. They represent the colonial settler invasion of land and the manner in which agricultural practices developed, dividing land in the arbitrary and money-oriented way we do . They have been resurrected for another life as totemic indicators, assembled with disused railway hardware and characters from my painted saw-cut vocabulary.
