the ‘work’ series

The Studio, Redfern
November, 2010

The ‘Work’ Series is drawn from the worksite I live in — the city of Sydney. From the new cycle ways to Prince Alfred Park, I have focused on heavy construction, and the workman is the icon.

Developing Sydney’s cityscape is something this city is looking at very closely at the moment. The bike paths; Barangaroo; Pitt Street Mall … What is being built will stay for many years to come, but my work focuses on the process of construction, which will be forgotten soon after these sites are completed.
