Karla Dickens' Indigenous (Wiradjuri) heritage is a driving force behind her overwhelming need to communicate, as are her sexuality and life experiences as a single mother. The works in this exhibition embody the rawness and daring that Karla's œuvre has ventilated for more than twenty years. A steady developer, Dickens has hit a rare vein of productivity over recent years, producing many works of poignancy, abounding beauty and brutal honesty. Containing photography, sculpture, collage, embroidery and poetry, this exhibition is a wide-ranging exploration of Karla Dickens' unique view of the world—where the present and past collide in a multi-dimensional kaleidoscope of the her own making.
