An artwork exploring division and symbol in my home town of Bourke, Western NSW.
Here is a story I wrote for the Outback Magazine, was lucky enough to get the cover photo. A great place and well worth a visit. Packsaddle Hotel – OUTBACK MAGAZINE 130 – PUB
This painting is an extension of a number of landscape works that explore the divisions and separations arbitrarily, or meaningfully associated with place. Symbols, patterns, text, boundaries and natural formations all come together to describe the landscape of the Darling river BARKA
About twelve months in the making, Outback Arts have just launched this project I have been working on, creating portraits and profiles for Aboriginal artists and creatives in the OA region. Hard to say just how much I love this project – you can view the portraits here: http://hullyjoe.com/andrew-hull/projects/living-arts-and-culture/ Profiles can be viewed here https://www.livingartsandculture.com.au/
Inspired by the vivid Autumn colours of Mildura – this painting took about a week to complete, and I played around with a bit of time-lapse along the way – reckon it looks ok.
We remember on this day those who passed along the way, and whose bodies fell upon a foreign shore
Those who gave up their tomorrows so that we might have today – its a memory that we dare not ignore
