artist statement

It is the smaller sheds as much as the more substantial sheds that attract me. This small shed, in all it’s two-stand glory, is as interesting as some of the larger sheds I work in. This shed is both shearing shed and store-room: a shed in use. For all the rickety nature of the leaning posts and the temporary fencing, it is this sort of shed that makes me smile as I come in the gate and see it there, guarding the entrance: a dowager who’s finery is still evident for all its lean-to appearance. Christine Porter Inverell 2014
