The vivid childhood memory of a seven year drought is used as a lens to examine our current environments crisis.  Fragile drawing samples evoke fragments of memory and the trauma of a dry and disintegrating landscape.  Marks on paper trace windblown dust; dry paddocks and empty tracks; the cracked creek bed and smoke haze in the air. Landscape disintegrates in the array of memory.
