Urban Sprawl – new artwork series

April 21, 2010

New art that I have been working on exploring the growth of urban sprawl. Having grown up in Ballarat on the edge of urban sprawl overlooking farms that were soon gobbled up by houses. The repetition of the houses and the paddocks that were slowly holding less livestock and becoming weed infested as suburbia took over. The farmer who was only to aware of the fate that awaited the farm.The hot summers that dried out the paddocks and the houses that large trees had yet to grow around, and truck loads of lawn mowers.
