Bleating Drought


Graphite, watercolour

Drought has devastating consequences for farmers and landowners, causing intense psychological trauma. During the development of this body of work my home, ‘Kayrunnera Station’ (north-west Broken Hill), has experienced the second worst drought in 18 years. The hardship my parents endure in running our station affected my work. However, while drought is devastating for a period, hard times must come to an end and the smaller drawings remind the audience that the barren land wasn’t always so tough, and will rejuvenate. The dull blues and browns capture the mindset of a struggling farmer as well as the land’s visual properties.
