Renuka Fernando's Hill End residency follows from a recent residency at Fowlers Gap, 1200 km west of Sydney, and forms part of an ongoing investigation into the dual themes of memory and space. While in Hill End, Fernando will create large scale drawings with charcoal, ink and graphite that focus on the unique landscape of the region, and the role memory plays in (re)constructing landscape and sense of place.
