The House series is a reflection of my experience growing up in the country, watching the lights of urban sprawl moving closer, pondering what life means and dreaming about moving on while also wanting to stand still.
‘The House’ is the first series I created using the spray paint and water-based screen printing combination. When I started making this series I didn’t have a studio, just an old asbestos ridden garage in my backyard with no power, lots of holes, a few mice and a couple of cats trying to chase them. I had to hose the screens out in the garden and dry the works on the clothes line. As a result of this poor set up printing took a long time as each work is hand colored with spray paint and stencils and then screen printed all by hand. Each piece is an edition of 55 but i only managed to print up around 10 of each back in 2010/2011. I am now making the remaining prints in my current Wollongong City Gallery studio and these works can now be ordered online in the shop.
