We acknowledge the Quandamooka People as the traditional custodians of the lands in which we live, make and work where sovereignty was never ceded.

This month six Northern Rivers Artists inspired by the botanical term “epicormic” meaning new or adventitious growth from a dormant bud, or after trauma have responded to the epicormic concept as a lens for re-authoring through artistic practice after difficult personal experiences of trauma. This artist-run initiative includes artists Julie Barratt, Scott Trevelyan, Jeremy Hawkes, Julianne Zoviar Clunne, Marion Conrow and Paul Andrew. This artist-run collaboration also celebrates ten years of activities at Willowbank Studio in Alstonville and the extraordinary anniversary  group exhibition Decade of Catharsis.

On now until December 18, 2016

Artist Paul William Andrew, Strange Monologues (Non-Finito Remix), including works from The Hopewood Peace and Non-Violence Project 1916-2016

Thank you dear Scott Trevelyan and Susie Forster for making this terrific micro doc, and for kindly sharing it on You Tube, it captures the shared feeling of epicormic joy and rapture.
