Summer Show : Noel Counihan Commemorative Art Award

Counihan Gallery, Melbourne

Part of my ongoing project my neighbourhood, this work: open space relates to mapping the landscape of Brunswick Park, Gilpin Park, Clifton Park and Raeburn Reserve which are located in Brunswick. Residents in the area initiated campaigns for open space in the early years of the twentieth century, and Brunswick Park and Oval- the first park in Brunswick, was opened in October 1907 as part of Brunswick’s Jubilee celebrations.

This work celebrates the success of the residents, and serves as a reminder that one hundred and ten years later, the need for open space and green space still persists as the population in Moreland continues to grow.
