Accompanying story: 

“Every element applied to the paper has been lovingly layered to capture what I love about Keriri Charlie Black and the traces of lives lived there," Lane 2020.

Inspired by the visual history of the Kirriri home where her grandparent’s raised ten children. Charlie Black is the affectionate name given to the family's block on Kerriri. The lives lived at Charlie Black are a testament to my granparent's ingenuity and survival employed permaculture principals – long before the term became fashionable. They did this in all aspects of their life, from building their shelter, their boats, furniture and farming on the land and sea. 

Elements within these works are intentionally placed with consideration to art and form, as an emotive visual reference to the historical narratives and material culture of Kirriri Charlie Black. The English name for Kirriri is Hammond Island and is part of the Thursday Island Group in the Torres Strait.

Material culture collected from the home site of Kirriri Charlie Black conveys so much about the lives of the people who lived there over generations. Lane’s family remain custodians of the site which is now cared for by her Uncle.
