artist statement

Smaller sheds as well as the more substantial sheds attract me. This small shed, in all it’s two-stand glory, is just as interesting as some of the bigger sheds I work in. It’s  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 despite its lean-to appearance. Christine Porter Inverell 2014
