Sarah Wallace Smith | Artist Statement

My work mines memory of family, colonial history, war and rural Australian landscape. The conduit for my work draws from a response to environment, social media, news and societal values as well as my experiences of country life and a need to work with my hands.

A fabric designed by my Aunty, whilst her husband was away at the war, was the catalyst for research into how families spend their time away from each other, what they dream of, what they worry about, and how it matches the reality of being together again, or being forever apart.

Beauty and horror, details and dreams.
