Additional Information

This is a drawing of a set of paper sculptures I created from spatial movements of our Deaf sign language, Auslan and I talked about, in sign, the time I wore a tickle talker (like an electric shock device) on my hand in 1988 when I was 9 years old to “help” me hear. I was one of the 5 chosen kids to trial this device. Luckily it never went further and some of us went on to get cochlear implants. The drawing draws you in and makes you ponder what the crumpled paper is saying…..
Drawn in pencil, charcoal, pastel and gouache.
This artwork was a finalist in the Lyn McCrea Memorial Drawing Prize in 2019 at the Noosa Regional Gallery.
