Richard Goodwin participated in the pilot of Hill End Artist in Residence program in 1994 and was included in the Artists of Hill End exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 1995. For Goodwin, Hill End at that time represented the antithesis of romantic notions of landscape; the end of the road, a site of infinite suffering and death, a place of empty shacks and eerie desolation. Richard returns to Hill End, still sceptical, but ready to investigate the changed nature of the township brought about by the influx of artists and the revival of its architecture. In a continuation of his architectural 'parasite' projects, Goodwin plans to create a prosthetic attachment "on the back" of an existing structure. (NSW Ministry for the Arts funded resident)
