This exhibition of twenty original creative works and catalogue is part of my CSU-PhD creative practice as research candidature and contributes to the fields of contemporary hybrid drawing/embroidery practice challenging traditional visual narrative models which investigate themes of damage and doubt in relation to early Australian Colonial history. Meaning is gleaned and cross-referenced visually, materially and spatially to challenge current perspectives of Colonial era master narratives imposed by blind dominant cultural knowledge of non-indigenous Australians. Encountering these works requires a complicity on the part of the viewer as does history itself. The significance of the exhibition lies in its use of innovative hybrid methodologies to engage opportunities for shifting perceptions and challenging assumptions in relation to the dominant representations of the early Australian Colonial past of VDL.
