dc.description.abstractThis exegesis surveys a selection of my visual arts practice, including exhibitions and public artworks, produced over the last twenty years (1995– 2015). This reflective inquiry references two distinct themes that continue to underpin my art practice, my Italian heritage and nature, and the interconnections between them. I draw upon selected and related theoretical perspectives to assist in particular readings of my creative work. Furthermore, I consider the place and significance of my work in relation to the Art Povera movement as well as selected contemporary visual artists practicing in Australia and beyond. As will be shown, my collective practice, while referencing my experience of being a second-generation Australian Italian, also acknowledges broader notions of immigration, resettlement and assimilation. The search for home, identity and belonging is central, understood through my migrant family’s myths and memories, dislocation, coexistence and the garden.
