 Artist Statement

'Hill Farm'

"Hill Farm is an imaginary place but the house is very real. I found it on the corner of Railway Terrace in Quorn, South Australia at the bottom of the Flinders Ranges. It was quite noticeable that many houses had a fancy, art deco style facade to part of the house. The house seemed lost and a bit out of place in suburbia and I thought that such a beautiful house deserved to hold centre stage.

I imagined who might live there, what sort of a life would it be. Where the occasional storm rolls through, stealing the sunshine in an instant, the landscape dry and dusty but with its own brand of beauty. I thought it would be a farmer sharing his life with his dog and the birds who have taken up residence in the roof. A simple life in an eccentric and slightly broken house, not the sort of place for a wife and child. I imagined him spending a fair bit of time tinkering in his shed (can you see that the light is on in there?) not really too serious about farming. Really just a simple life of a loner, in the rural outback of South Australia." ~ Suellen Cook
