ARTIST STATEMENT - LUMPER LUMPER

Genevieve’s artwork has an intuitive immediacy to it, an urgency that reacts as an internal discourse to mapping the personal and universal themes of existence through the subjects of the human condition, poetry and our natural world. 

The social and work connections of arrival and departures through the Canowindra Railway Station inspired this art installation, weaving the agricultural wheat history and the poem of Frank Daniel into the ticketing room space.

The artwork is edgily humorous and emphasis is placed on repetition of the word Lumper, the term given to the robust men that stacked and unstacked hundreds of wheat sacks for transport by rail.
