2016 and 2015 – Artist in Residency, New Norcia, Western Australia

The New Norcia Benedictine Community founded New Norcia in 1847. The monastery is active and supports visiting artists who wish to stay.  New Norcia has an extensive collection of religious art and exhibits works from the Mandorla Art Award.  I travelled to New Norcia with a group of fellow artists and developed a body of work based on rubbings of cracked floors, inspired by the idea that cracks are how the light gets in (Leonard Cohen).
