Julie Taylor

While bushwalking, I love feeling the strong, ancient presence of this country in Central Australia, standing as a dominant force through millennia before man.

It brings ideas of overlapping histories and the transience of states of being.

I particularly love the corkwood tree (Hakea divaricata & Hakea suberea) with its deeply furrowed bark patterns and limbs twisted by slow growth.

Charcoal sticks, to draw with, are brittle and dry. They match the fragile and arid characteristics of the Central Australian bush.

My artwork revolves around sculpture, drawing in charcoal, and printmaking.
