"In this particular series of works, I have reflected on my time spent in the Central West. I have focused mainly on the ever changing afternoon sky, its kaleidoscope of colours, the clouds, its transformative effect on the land and its vastness. It’s about the end of the drive, you’re almost home and nature is putting on its final show before the night sky creeps in." - Fiona Barrett-Clark

These works, created in response to her participation in the Hill End Artists in Residence Program in 2014, represent a transition from an abstract to more figurative approach and explore the mysterious forces, layers of time, and ghostly history of this unique village.......
