Haefligers Cottage

Hill End will provide Blue Mountains based artist James Blackwell with valuable insight into the rich historical associations between the landscape and the artists of Hill End. An aim of his residency is to excavate an understanding of Hill End's geography and wealth of natural materials and respond through his practice, which includes collecting and utilising found natural objects in assemblages on paper. Blackwell's grid-like assemblages attempt to embody the stillness he senses in the natural world.
