Avoca Beach 5 Lands Walk Festival, 2007 .
Wood (Pine 90mm x 90mm) and oil paint,
approximately 3m x 3m x 3m in area.

At the time created this work I was living in the beach house that I holidayed in as a child and came across a box of old Cuisenaire Rods.  As a pregnant mother of a 2.5yr old it sparked off so many memories and emotions that I set about exploring with counting rods!

The Five Lands Walk is an annual cultural event involving MacMasters, Copacabana, Avoca, North Avoca and Terrigal which takes place on the winter solstice to co-incide with the northern whale migration. It involves the local arts community as well as invited artists to respond to the natural environment.
