In June 2012, Christine was invited to Condobolin, by family friends, to create a body of work about their wool-shed. She spent several days immersing herself in the visual feast that was presented to her. “The best paintings happen when I work on site”, she writes. “Being there for many days gives me a chance to fully explore the way the light changes over the day and how it relates with the different views of the buildings. There were days of bleak winter light either end of my trip, but the few days of bright sunshine in the middle made the experience for me. I drew lots when I was there, and started some paintings, which were then completed in my studio from the material I’d collected. Thank you to the Gavel family for giving me the chance to experience the subjects and ambience of this historic and beautiful place” Christine Porter, Condobolin 2014
Full Moon Publications have published some of the images from this series as greeting cards. Cards with the code C27 -C39 are of Gulgo.
Most of the paintings that have been sold into private collections Australia-wide: contact Christine if you are interested in seeing an up-to-date photo of the couple that are still available (Christine has worked on them since they were first exhibited/photographed. There is one in particular of the northern wall of the shed, that was exhibited in her 2017 Inverell exhibition which is still available)
The series Ten Windows was also created as part of this project. Here are two from that series.
