Thanks For Spending Your Life Caring For Others €� Now Go And Sleeep In Your Car

Description : The ability of art to lead and globalise cultural change is profound but often represented by creativity and conversations at a point in time rather than driven, sustained and emotional outrage. The fact that women over 55 is the fastest growing homeless group in Australia is a disgrace. My work seeks to uncomplicate the issue by simply portraying this overpowering and immoral behavior.The title of my work comes from Australian author and social commentator Jane Caro. It is blunt but real. It is emotional and simple. The images represent the families and their legal and financial advisors driven by indifference, greed and loathing. Up to 14% of older Australians may be subject to abuse each year according to the Australian Institute of Family Studies.My passion behind this issue has been developed and informed from the information I have received as a non-executive director of the Australian charity “Seniors Rights Service” (SRS). SRS is a community organisation dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights of older people, particularly vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.Through this artwork I want observers to realise the imbalance in relationships is significant and frequent. If some recoil from viewing it that is a reaction I want. I hope some find it disturbing, offensive and intimidating.The foundations and dynamics of elder abuse are very complex, but I have chosen to show it for what it is – people with influence doing what is horribly wrong. Whilst my work is influenced by our Australian shame, older women’s homelessness is a global problem. Consequently, many opportunities exist for influential teaching galleries to be leaders on the issue and to hasten and sustain positive international conversations in support of vulnerable older people.

Short CV

A collector of Australian and international art over the past 25 years, now painting professionally full time for the past 24 months. A member of the Eramboo Artist Environment in the northern suburbs of Sydney. Using simple shapes and compositions I hope to re-express both mundane and complex concepts and create images that will have viewers linger a little longer to explore and discover their own feelings and interpretations.
I measure success by the volume and diversity of debate and discussion around my work, and by how these activities can expand the works’ relevance and consequence.
My early achievements under, have been in Geometric Abstraction, Portraiture, Abstract Landscape and Social Messaging genres.
