For this print portfolio 20 artists, from Australia, Mexico and New Zealand, have combined to contribute their interpretation of a myth or legend that has a personal resonance for them, based on fact or fiction, past or present. The resulting imagery and stories reflect a diversity of cultural backgrounds, Maori, Pakeha, Zenadh Kes, Tongan, Chinese and Mexican. The images also present a range of attitudes, from respectful to provocative reappraisals of past and present stories and issues.
Meet Me At The Water brings together imagery of the artist’s family during summer swims in nearby rivers, along with ideas of joy, playfulness and connectedness. Tracy’s lyrical, restrained and deft use of colour and gesture are reminiscent of the natural light in these environments and expressively portray the moments of celebration that can flood these playful summer times.
