In the old mining town of Hill End in western NSW, many cottages still contain objects which the original owners brought with them. The exhibition moves through cameo images of these objects creating still life images which focus on the trappings of domesticity in these frontier towns. The small homely objects collected in early years show the determination of our early settlers to create comfort in a harsh environment. Words such as memory, transience, disappearing and absence come to mind but there is also a sense of whimsy in many of the works.
