There’s been a strange series of serendipitous moments going on lately. Last November I was visiting the National Gallery of Australia and saw Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series and loved the story-telling through art. Then, over at the National Library I saw Azaria Chamberlain’s Baby Bracelet
I realised no one has told the story of Lindy Chamberlain through art, in the same way that Nolan retold Ned Kelly the bushranger’s story. It was something I had to do, through collage. It’s a huge undertaking, especially since I want to complete it by the inquest on February 24, 2012. Here’s the first one, Red Heart Dark Portent of the campsite at Uluru where baby Azaria was taken by a dingo.
