‘Tennis Mum in Gondwana’ is an exploration of the breach between contemporary western society and nature. I have displaced an iconic urban stereotype in the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia to illuminate the contrast between our identity and our natural environment. The gap in time between our modern lives and the ageless Gondwana rainforest of 100 million years ago is abruptly closed. The mists of time at once seem to reconcile these disparate forces (mother nature and a modern mother) yet shroud the scene with the impenetrable beautiful mysteries of the natural world.
