Digital print Polygonal City 18

Polygonal City 18
Camp Street, Ballarat

2010
Inkjet on watercolour paper
75 x 56 centimeters

Despite some shortcomings as an ideal home, my long term residence in, and ownership of a Victorian house has engendered a fondness for the style of architecture that define the old city centres in south-east Australia. The mood of this print is melancholic -- which is apt -- considering that the day I explored this part of central Ballarat, it was cold, dark and rainy. The solitary figure is from a drawing by the French Post-Impressionist artist, Georges Seurat.
