white bred and straight lines

an installation by Laura McKew and Rob Duffield

Access Gallery

July 29 to August 17, 2005

Dialogue with artists : Saturday July 30, 2pm


 White bred and straight lines is about the colour white; the meanings attached within a white dominant culture, white breeding, colonisation, and the economic rationalism that encourages growth at any cost; the black roads epitomise this unrelenting desire for speeding progress as cars go faster, petrol disappears, and roadkill wipes out indigenous animals and humans alike. The road symbolises the conformist blinkered existence many choose to live - follow the straight lines, no deviation that can eventually only end in tragedy.


Rob and Laura are two white (bred) women working collaboratively in life and art. We cannot separate life from art or from the environment. We try to maintain a connection to nature through picking up litter, some of which we make into art, and taking time to slow down.

 We embrace the idea of slow art, which to us embodies the use of found, recycled or recyclable materials, living with art is a means of political expression and change and is an essential aspect of life that is available to everyone.

Rob and Laura have held work shops and exhibited their work in various exhibitions at Noosa Regional Gallery.
