‘Words from the First Walk’ explores three different perspectives of the same walk at ‘Coorah’, a sixth generation family farm in central west New South Wales. Poet and essayist Tom Lee, whose ancestor William Lee first arrived in the district in 1818, led the walk. Two of Tom’s essays about Coorah are presented in the catalogue. Jacqueline Lorber-Kasunic created a photo essay from the walk. My work (see below) includes a collection of collages, solar plate etchings and drawings that respond to a passage from Murray Bail’s novel Eucalyptus, which links paragraphs to paddocks, and publishing to farming. I also created a 90-page catalogue of writing and images to accompany the show, available from Lulu.
