Michael Cook: Mother

WHEN : 8th January - 26th February
WHERE : Caloundra Regional Art Gallery

Mother is a journey through thirteen images of a woman in a deserted Australian landscape. The ‘mother’ is always alone, her baby absent, although evidence of a child remains in the empty pram, abandoned toys on the hopscotch court, the slackness of the skipping rope. These images possess an arrested stillness that speaks to a recently bereft status.
