This year TRAILS finalists included artists from across Australia. The works reflected a range of media, techniques and experience, providing viewers with a broad spectrum from which to cast their People's Choice vote. TRAILS included large scale works in the main exhibition and small scale works in a miniatures exhibition.
The woven bats are created using ancient techniques passed from Elders to the artist; emphasising that Culture persists. The interplay of light and shadow references the silhouetted bats against the Dharawal Country sky. Country is light, it is shadow, animals, plants - Country is what we can, and cannot see.
