Round and Round, 17 November - 23 December 2015
The cycle of growth, death and decay continue as important themes in Roberta Thornley's practice.
In this most recent body of work she circles the garden below her studio, collecting and creating relics that bind present and past. Round and Round.
The bush below my studio is used by kids who live in the neighbouring properties. With this series of photographs I circled and explored the world they had created. I looked for the elusive players but never found them. Sometimes I would see bushes and foliage hacked off at the knees ... scalps of leaves lying on the ground ... and wondered whether the garden had become more violent since I started working there. I've still never seen them. I've heard their voices. But I've never seen them.
