JULIE POULSEN | From the 'Savannah Country' series:

"The highway north between Mount Molloy and Cooktown is Savannah Country. Unfenced, and seamlessly blurred by heat and dust, this landscape has no edges. After rain the creeks run, the grass grows, bright for a minute then crumples, fueling fires and blackening the landscape. So much beauty in such a harsh landscape.

The beginning of 2000 was a shift in focus from easel painting and return to a process started in Art College; the assemblage of paintings through stitching. These signature works required a disproportionate amount of combinable canvas and calico, all decorated with distinctive marks and surface treatment of cunningly conforming patterns, colours and imagery. This abundance of fabric guaranteed a surplus of useable remnants. 21 years later and these classic offcuts from different series including Menu Boards, Chalk Boards, Aeroplane Jelly, Landscape and figurative works come out of storage to be given a new life as quintessential bags."  Julie Poulsen
