Aurelian at Richmond Library

Yarra City Arts, Richmond Library

10 May – 28 Jul 2017

Aurelian – In this recent series of works, my investigations into history, museological collections and the Victorian landscape have enabled me to piece together an evolving continuum of erasure, recovery, loss and memory. After spending extensive time researching the entomology collection at Museums Victoria, studying now extinct and endangered species of butterflies and moths. I then travelled to the sites of extinction and collected soil samples which have been used to create painterly backgrounds or environments on which to photograph the butterfly specimens.

Aurelian is presented as part of Locale 2017, Yarra City Council's Exhibition Program at Richmond Town Hall, Richmond Library, Fitzroy Library and Bargoonga Nganjin North Fitzroy Library.
