FACES & PLACES: A Documentation showed at Beverley Station Arts Centre from Jan 31 until Feb 16, 2020.
These works were the result of time spent by me as the Artist in Resident at Beverley Station Art Gallery. Like many city inhabitants I had limited to no experience of Western Australia’s rural communities. I found an incredibly charismatic, diverse and generous congregation of people.
The efforts by individuals to rehabilitate/ conserve the land, tolerance to each other and treatment of animals was far more than many of my environmentally conscious friends have the knowledge to do. None of these things I would have associated with country living prior to the residency. The portraits and places on display are only the tip of the iceberg in regards to people who opened their homes and shared their stories and experiences.
