Time is the essential material in this work. It is a transformative element.
The process was with wet clay and vegetation on quality watercolour paper. This was then rolled up and left for months, later flattened and dried, worked with and stabilised. The result is as much the hand of time as that of the artist.

The cracks that time inhabits recreate the ruptured surfaces of the salt lakes in the area around Kati Thunda (Lake Eyre).
These cracks which are caused by the slow drying of the salt after a rain event and the relentless heat of outback summers, are filled with the collected remnants of the recent bushfires on Kangaroo Island. Blackened leaves and cracked glass peer from within, encouraging us to consider the deep and constant presence of what lies beneath. In these works ‘time’ is just as much a material as the clay with which they were formed.
