What is Art ? For me Art is what you feel and what you experience, Its not about what you try to justify with words or post-rationalist it. With this artwork I would like to pay my respect to the traditional owners of Wyndham and remind people of the importance of what has come before. “BLACKYELLOWRED” has a central theme of exploring history. In combination with the visual collage that represents important historical elements there is sound and technology. This artwork honours Werribee's long history; the people and the places. I want to make art that can be understood and enjoyed by many people and I want to share my love of history, architecture and the Werribee River.
