Ladders & Boxes

This painting is a reflection upon my time spent at TAFE (in 2007) immediately adjacent to the site, although all of the old buildings have now been demolished and made into a park, a vast improvement. The grid-like design is drawn from the architecture of the college and the societal constructs that demand the following of certain paths and procedures for individual advancement within the education system. The use of the colour green and the organic fluidity of the forms suggest growth and hint at the history of the landscape prior to settlement and urbanisation, this particular site having once been part of a fertile wetland.
