After serving for eleven years in the Royal Australian Navy, Marie-Louise Jones was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). While serving in the First Gulf War, she experienced difficulties with the antagonistic attitudes from her male co-workers. Entangle seeks to create a conversation of awareness of PTSD in female veterans, and, hopefully, help others that have experienced this to seek help and support.
Becoming Becoming is a dynamic, site-generated drawing installation that explores transformation. Both a performance and exhibition, Kellie O’Dempsey’s work maps the creative process through video projection and live collaboration, questioning the divisions between public and private through collective experience. For this work she has collaborated with sound artist Michael Dick.
A series of pen, ink and watercolour drawings of Townsville and other destinations, which explore the urban environment as well as the natural world.
