Wellard is an inquiry into the nature of the Australian Dream in 2017. Reflecting on the concept of the Private Estate, Wellard identifies a culturally rooted desire for security and exclusivity which inevitably leads to separation and isolation. An autobiographical body of work, Wellard expresses the artist’s struggle between a desire for both security and freedom.
This exhibition contributes to a discourse about modern Australia and the ways in which Australians inhabit and domesticate space; it is an investigation of Australia’s emerging identity by exposing the ways we relate to our environment.
