It is rare for artists to be invited to show such an extensive body of work. This contribution played a significant role in the later development of my Blood Money Currency Exchange Terminal. My work was featured on the cover of the issue. A copy of the Art Monthly issue was featured in an exhibition of the work at the Reserve Bank Museum, Martin Place.

gro.description.notepublicMy exhibition consists of a newly designed suite of Australian banknotes that extends from my ongoing 'Blood Money' series of watercolour paintings on paper. These works of art explore contemporary Australian history through the lens of important and notable Aboriginal people. These key figures can teach us valuable historical lessons in regards to their experiences of dispossession, oppression and the suppression of contrary legacies. From them we can learn valuable insights that tell us much about cross-cultural histories and Aboriginal relationships with 'white' or non-Aboriginal Australia
