Consider Melbourne now at the peak of its prosperity. The drawings of unsettlement depict scenes of our neglected industrial landscape with the future in question. The romantic technique pays homage to these “dead zones” as the essential shelters and passages that have supplied our city. Described with saturated patterned pen marks the images hang on the paper with a texture fashioned much like a tapestry or blanket. The knitted scenes show evidence of a prosperous industrial time, with an uncertain future; one of greater upheaval, population movement and resource scarcity. These could be our nostalgic glory days.
