This series of work was developed from Joanna’s recent residency at Hill End, NSW where she visited local cottages and made countless, quick sketches which later evolved into large scale charcoal drawings.
These drawings of delightfully cluttered cosy interiors are imbued with hospitality and speak of the kind-hearted community she experienced.
The large scale of the work invites the viewer to immerse themselves in the drawings, to almost walk in to the cottages and become a part of the lives of their occupants, enveloped in the curios, architecture and history of this unique town.
The Hill End Artists in Residence Program is managed by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery in partnership with the Department of Environment & Heritage NSW Parks and Wildlife Services.
This project has been further assisted by a 2020 Northern Beaches Council Creative Communities Support Grant.
