Wall to Wall, Benalla VIC

Wall to Wall festival in Benalla, Victoria. Curated by Juddy Roller

This wall is painted from the image of Ned Kelly’s nephew standing at the Kelly homestead in Greta West, just outside of Benalla in 1922. The wall in the picture is covered with carved initials. They included K.K., A.S., J.B., N.K., D.K., S.H., carved by Kate, Sherritt, Joe Byrne, Dan & Ned and Steve Hart, The Kelly gang and Family.

The use of old images has become a recurrent theme in my work, through the nostalgia and the sentiment community attach to photographs, old stories and people. Images can become distorted, faded or misused over time, they become our mythology.
