(14) Apron Stratification

I like the idea of “strata” in general. Maybe a few years ago, I saw an exhibition of indigenous art at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG). There was one work (a linocut) of underground layers, a cross-section of strata. One horizontal section was filled with skulls pertaining to ancestry. I was hooked. Since then, I have obsessed a tad (like most artists obsess, I guess) on all things strata – such as my acrylic paintings “Stratification,” and “Nude Strata.” (on this site). During my volunteering hours at BRAG (each week), I often see these aprons in the “access room” (for art workshops), and they change every week, as people use them, and hang them up differently each time.
