I conducted this research having managed a sustained art practise over the last 30 years. I have explored my studio practice and recognised the inherent intelligence in the processes I use, and I have rediscovered my making as a collaboration with materials. I am a mid-career artist and have exhibited widely, including nine solo shows and numerous group exhibitions, and I have had artworks acquired by recognised collections. I have undertaken this research with the understanding that, at this time, I must engage more rigorously with my artwork and generate a critical and theoretical framework for my practice. The culmination of this practice-led research is my exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, at the Spectrum Project Space, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia, where I continue to respond to the story with printmaking and installation, creating a dynamic space for viewers to contemplate themselves in relation to the story.
