acrylic collage found objects thread on canvas 80x27cm 2012 I love maps. This piece is based on some English road maps from the 16thCentury, which, in absence of google earth plotted roads on long scrolls. One night while having steak and mash at the Coopers Arms I asked people what Newtown meant to them. Those important sites are listed on this map. The metal letters I bought in a craft store in Chicago in 2008. The camel I picked up in the streets of Marrickville on one of my walks. I think it was part of a great find including some Fuzzy Felt and some flash cards with rabbits on them. I sewed the road, and created a scroll.
