Granite Belt Wildflowers: Out of Oblivion series was created on a forested property at Harrigans Lane, Wilsons Downfall in NSW. Local bush flowers, flickering in the sunlight and scattered across this beautiful and inspirational landscape, are the focus of this series. The flowers, such as Glycine clandestine (Twining glycine) and Chrysocephalum apiculatum (Yellow buttons) to name just a couple, were collected at various locations on the property to create images and map the locations.
Many of the flowers are almost invisible in the landscape amongst abundant lush ferns, tall grasses and fallen branches. This series brings the blossoms out of their bush stage, where they once flourished unseen, and thereafter have emerged grander and brighter as art installations in situ during The Piano Mill public events by Harrigans Lane Collective. These emergent hues can dominate indoor or outdoor spaces with their bold and rich presence.
