Lucky Charms

Works on paper by Christine Scott


Artist statement

Lucky Charms refers to the Irish settlers of my district in country Victoria (my grandfather was one in the early 1850s) and is a comment on genetic fiddling with farming and the simple brilliance of a farm girl with little to do other than construct things using only barbed wire. 

Georgia O’Keeffe’s Black Cross is my reference point as it is one of my favourite paintings mixing religion and the power of the land.
