Cressy is surrounded by farmland and an irrigation scheme was started in 1999. When viewed from above the land can be
seen as a rich tapestry of colourful circles. This is a natural occurring pattern that inspired the artwork. Whilst working with a playful colour palette, the work showcases Brumby Creek, Cressy’s main street and surrounding farmland. Using a pen and ink drawing style we can get a visual sense of the land when converting these into simple shapes. Breaking the landscape down into varying size circles, squares and rectangles creates an intriguing artistic map of the postcode 7302.
“7302” Is an ariel view of the area of Cressy. We have taken into consideration the landscape and developed a composition
that shows the main street, the unique flow of the river and the surrounding farmland which looks like a modern piece of
contemporary artwork in it’s own right.
