At the beginning of the year Wendy Kelly and I embarked on a project exploring the experience of being forced out of the familiar and into a changed environment. The work in this exhibition at Five Walls in Footscray was the result. Although the theme was shared, as was the language of geometric hard-edged abstraction, the resulting works were markedly different. Wendy explored the intensity and rhythms of contemporary Melbourne whilst I was inspired by my recent experience of time spent in Barcelona.
