'Remnant Dairy' 1mx1m acrylic, first prize Birregurra Art Show 2017

The concept for my 'Remnant Dairy' series came about after I kept noticing identical old buildings on various roadsides in the area. While a few dairies are still in use and had been renovated or even replaced, a lot were just abandoned. After some anecdotal research (my 86 year old father was born in the area) I learned some history. The properties these dairies are on were acquired by the Government for WW1 & WW2 Soldier Settlers. Each property had an identical house and a dairy.
I'm interested in how the past is written on the weathered surfaces of these basic functional buildings, giving a sense of history just as relevant as fine architectural detail.
