The Dingo’s Noctuary (New Work)

Preliminary visual works for a new illustrated verse novel entitled “The Dingo’s Noctuary”, due for release in late 2019. This book includes maps, plant pressings, poems, prose, photographs, drawings and lumen prints. I am grateful for poetry mentoring from Judith Beveridge and Bob Adamson, and for gentle nurturing and guidance from Warlpiri law ladies Agnes, Myra, Biddy, Valerie, Judy and Kitty.

Lumen Prints

Lumen prints, plants and carcasses on fibre paper, exposed 12-26 hours in natural sunlight or moonlight, under marked glass and netting.
