Rodd Residency at the Sidney Nolan Trust. Summer 2019
I used the residency as a research gathering exercise into how we record and remember places, events, experiences.
Techniques used included collecting ephemera, allowing rain to be absorbed into paper, rubbing surfaces, using shadows as a tool of the drawing process, watching decay affect organic materials, watercolour and ink painting - using brushes and twigs as tools for both printing and painting. My grounds included different papers and some textiles. Stitching was also a component of the work. The installation Marking Memory was a panel of different mark making methods hung in the kitchen of the grand mansion at the end of the residency. The location was chosen as it referenced my current body of work relating to creative processes learnt from my grandmother at her kitchen table.
