Corio Village

‘Faces of Corio’, mural, 2020.

The Faces of Corio mural for Corio Village, was conceived as a colourful tribute to the local community, brimming with action and optimism.

In the piece, people of Corio are going about their daily work. Bakers, butchers, baristas and football players are shown alongside people and families shopping. The figures are moving together with purpose through their environment of abstract shapes and drifting, mountainous forms alluding to the local You Yangs.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded. I pay my respects to Elders past and present.
