ARTIST STATEMENT

Through a naive drawing style we have captured the Tasmanian landscape of the North, showcasing, St Helens, the city of Launceston, The nut and out to Queenstown. Using the original pen drawing to create harmony and simplicity with the interior, the work recedes to create a sophisticated yet playful atmosphere. The complex drawing allows for the audience to find different things within the work. This playful approach communicates to all ages making the artwork approachable to the staff & students using the space. We feel the landscape of the North represents the internet-based architecture of the school, allowing the viewer to see their own home among the landscape, that be a house, a boat or rural setting. The work represents the independent way students learn and yet also considers their connection within the larger community.
