Hard Light represents an exploration of memory and perception. The artist reclaims the intense quality of light from her childhood in an Australian country town during the 1960s. Using Cyanotype sensitised archival paper, blazing summer sunshine is filtered through symbolic objects and places to portray the ghostly shadows of her past. Undercurrents of metaphorical horrors beneath superficially benign townscapes suggest the trauma of a child trying to understand and survive a violent family life.
