From a bee-sting to a childhood re-visited.
A chance visit in the doctor’s waiting room saw painter Anna Glynn read and apply to an advertisement for an ‘Artist in Residence’ program. Anna’s application was successful. What she didn’t know was that the homestead she would live in was an old neighbouring property directly across the river from the farm where Anna grew up.
An emotional journey followed – both magical and nostalgic – creating a special body of work. A 12-metre panoramic lounge window overlooking the place of her childhood became the studio and doorway to Anna’s wonderful story – her strange memories.
