Today I received the prints of my work donated to Friends of Tasman Island Pozible Campaign. They reached their target and I have signed my life away.

From what I hear, the work on Quarters 2 on Tasman Island has been completed and looks amazing (click on the link above to see it on their Facebook page). I'm glad I could contribute in a small way and thank Friends of Tasman Island for all of their support of my practice over the years. It feels good to give a little back.

Prints signed and ready for delivery

Update: Congratulations Friends of Tasman Island on making your crowd funding campaign target plus more. A well deserved project to a well deserved group of hard working volunteers. I am proud, glad and humbled that I could assist.


For a limited time only, and to support the Friends of Tasman Island (who supported me for many years to explore and discover Tasman Island), you can purchase a print of a drawing of mine (printed by Luke Wagner at Archival Ink on high quality archival paper and signed by me) There are 5 variations available (see below), each work features a different aspect of what is the incredible landscape of Tasman Island. The campaign runs until 6 October so get in fast.

All funds raised goes towards a project to repair one of the three beautiful houses still standing on the island. Click here to have a look at the campaign on the Pozible site, or take a look at the Friends of Tasman Island Facebook page for more.

Hi all, it's been a while since updates. I am slack, yes indeed, but my head has been down busily writing and drawing. I have 6 months left to finish off my PhD so it may continue to be quiet around here for a little longer.

Anyway, Sydney Contemporary is this week, and Handmark are taking some of my work up to it. I will be there on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday if you are around in Sydney and want to say hi. Sydney Contemporary is on at Carriageworks in Redfern; Handmark can be found on Booth P03 from 7-10 September. Then its back home and into the studio.

Here's a few new drawings that will be on display at Sydney Contemporary...

VENUE: Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Bond Store Basement

Full Void is an exhibition of large-scale charcoal drawings by Mary Scott and David Edgar. Responding to the rich textural qualities of charcoal, the works explore darkness and the void in relation to a series of abstract architectural and geological spaces. In contrast to the traditional concept of the void as an empty or vacuous space, Scott and Edgar engage charcoal as a medium that gives dimensionality to blackness and explore the visual and psychological weight particular to ‘blackness’ ‘darkness’ and ‘shadow’.

Curated by Eliza Burke

FLOOR TALK: Filling the Void - Artists and Curator in Conversation, Saturday 18 March 2017, 11am-12pm, Bond Store Basement, TMAG.

Full Void was assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts. Supported by Ten Days on the Island and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
