Transformation is a fundamental aspect of the human experience. Dragonflies are symbolic of growth and adaptation to changes in nature. I have used reclaimed materials to capture these majestic creatures. The materials are symbolic of the bond between the fluid natural environment and the stagnant manufactured world, encapsulating the fragile balance that the interrelationship of these contrasting worlds rests upon. In addition, I have formed a work that holds a deep connection to my own transformation by using materials I associate with my upbringing; materials situated around my home environment or items associated with childhood memories. 

ARTEXPRESS is a joint venture of the NSW Department of Education and Communities and the Board of Studies, Teaching & Education Standards NSW, hosted by Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre.
