A year in the making, this exhibition examines objects salvaged from the flood waters of 2011, and seeks to understand what we value and why.

this blog is all about women artist’s making a difference to the world through their art practices. Claire asks questions about Recovery – Flood Objects Project
A Self Portrait entitled Facing Myself has been selected for the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award held at Grafton Regional Gallery. The exhibition opens on the 26th October 2012 and then tours Regional and Metropolitan galleries throughout 2013-2014. It is an investigation of myself in charcoal on paper, and how I now have to see the world, through my glasses or over them.
The main focus for this year has been to get alongside people who have lost possessions during the summer floods of 2011 and document their stories of loss and recovery through paintings and text.
