‘On which to travel’ depicts various stages of Covid-19 in Melbourne. There is an inherent connection that we share through this experience and the possible stresses that it may present. The idea behind the vessels has a particular resonance to connect people in the situation of self-isolation and physical distancing. The production of these artworks explores common knowledge of the everyday to the unknowns of an uncertain future with the pandemic. These vessels aim to carry ideas of magic, fulfilment and creative inspiration. They represent things coming to life, the birth of ideas and are organic. A moment of stillness, contemplation and excitement for the new. The world is often about consuming and disposing of possessions. These vessels represent recyclables and renewables in an impermanent world. By exploring, developing and creating these sculptures and pencil drawings of ribbons are part of the narrative. There are infinite possibilities and hope in these times in which to travel.
