Jude’s artwork for Document://Bimblebox consisted of beautiful documentation made on Bimbelbox Nature Refuge.  While at Bimblebox Jude Constantly traversed the landscape  journeying between  watering points and along fence lines.

“The process for my art making has evolved from the physical sites that I work on. These drawing sites on the Great Artesian Basin and in the case of Bimblebox Nature Reserve, the Galilee Basin, allow me to document by capturing  stains, impressions and materials found in the earth and water.”

Rubbings from old trees appear as ancient text.

Laying paper over burnings with smoke, ash and coals is another way for Jude to capture the elements of transformation.

These rolls of calculator paper have been used to explore long areas of fence lines.

For Jude “drawing, soaking, fossicking and documenting on areas such as the Bimblebox Nature Reserve provide experiences of profoundity and  accentuates the concept of time’s irreversible flow.”

One response to “Document://Bimblebox, Imprinting Boundaries and Netting Fences, Jude Roberts

  1. Hi Jude,
    Your works brought to mind this quotation “and giving forth the aroma of Time beyond the conception of man.”, so I particularly loved the rubbings from old trees.
