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 Lumachrome glass 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.
Lumachrome Glass Prints
Lumachrome glass print, cliché verre, plants and carcasses on fibre paper, exposed 12-26 hours in natural sunlight or moonlight, under marked glass and netting.
Maps & Pressed Plants
Drawn maps of stars and of the central Australian deserts. Pressed plants from remote Indigenous ancestral sites in Warlpiri country.
