These works are from an ongoing long term project titled 'The Bench'. Made during daily walks under the restrictions of a partial lockdown. The work focuses on the happenings that surround a secluded bench in a Melbourne parkland. The project looks to subtly describe elements of chance, hope and hopelessness that continue to pulse through the everyday.
During a period of social restriction, when routine can become both limiting and grounding, these chance encounters and their means of expression emerge as new and, at times, unexpected players in the rhythm day to day life.
