WestSpace Gallery Footscray, Melbourne in 1993

This body of work was created when I was artist in residence at ICI (now Orica) an Industrial site in Deer Park Melbourne. I had a studio on site that lasted for a few years. The project was initiated by a research scientist named David Parris who worked their and wanted artists to become more involved with the community. The project was further supported by Chris Reidy, arts officer of the Western Region. I was also supported by the Australia Council for the arts. The aim wasn't to create works about the site, as I had created many other works, but I couldn't resist documenting my surrounding of this industrial site.

Images are selected works.
