Under the Floorboards

‘Under the Floorboards’ was a commissioned Artist Residency with Uniting Care Ballarat, bringing together the work of 12 different artists who have spent the month each with the organisation depicting their experiences. Exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, my four finished artworks – life size mosaic portraits told the story of each week’s residency in thousands of little photos collaged together and layered over a monochrome hero portrait. All four were sold at the VIP auction to private collectors raising funds for Uniting Care community services.

“The Truth is that we all are fragmented. Some more then others and they’re the ones who need help. That there are thousand pieces to one’s story and so we should not be judgmental. What you see is what you get but if you look deeper you’ll see more.”
