Guerilla art

Street Art in Castlemaine

My first street art, made to coincide with the 2017 Castlemaine State Festival in Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia. I was unaware of the festival's submission dates last year, so I missed it! :( Not to be deterred, I went ahead and made something for it anyway ;)

This work, Scale #1 and Scale#2, is a continuation of my ongoing series, Ways of Seeing. The title of the series pretty much speaks for itself, or so I hope! It's not an original title- John Berger wrote and co-created an immensely influential television series called Ways of Seeing, which aired in 1972 and was later adapted into a book of the same name.

I appropriated the title as I use this work to inform my own perspectival explorations using photography and video.
