Wandering along Gore Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne. Holding hands in the middle of the night many, many years ago, a boy I liked ‘tripped’ me over in the middle of a roundabout covered in flowers and we kissed on the ground, surrounded by tall flower stems. This was the first memory that came to mind when I read the invitation brief to this exhibition. It was an extraordinarily romantic, short-lived romance.
I decided to employ the use of natural materials for this piece, weaving fresh flowers into place where they slowly dried into position playfully as a wheel of memories.
