“From early 2022, the concept for a lively urban community arts project developed, with local artists Nat Rad and Renee Tan working with Karen community members to develop an artwork suitable for a mural. It proved to be a successful grassroots project, with Renee and Nat holding workshops for the development of the mural concept, and mural artist, Chad Marwick, translating the design into a painting for the wall, which will soon be launched at 348 Middleton Loop as part of this year’s Art and Craft Trail.” Southerly Magarzine Septmeber 2022
This has been an exciting and rewarding project!

“I have imagined a garment for a human who is connected and exposed to nature. A human who wears clothing that shows the real fragile nature of the body rather than armour. The transparency of grease proof paper has been pruposely used to show that skin is the fragile protector of the internal body. The heart light is visible beating through the chest, front and back as Collyn walks to an orginal soundscape, made up of recordings around Albany.” Nat Rad 2022
