In association with Sunsiz Media Residency, Lightning Ridge, NSW, Australia
Collaboration project with friend and fellow artist Rachael Ireland
Having both completed fine art studies in Newcastle, NSW Rachael Ireland (BFA hons) and Taryn Raffan (BFA) have developed an ongoing interest together discussing methods of art making and philosophies connected to place, structural and physical awareness. Ireland and Raffan have both undertaken residencies individually in remote locations visiting places such as Hill End, New South Wales; Bruny Island, Tasmania; Argentina and Upernavik, Greenland.
Ireland is currently completing a Masters of Art Therapy at Western Sydney University and Raffan is exploring further research in mineralogy and place consciousness. In August 2015 both artists traveled together to Lightning Ridge, NSW to combine practices and ideologies, ellipse: a project between two points at Gaffa Gallery has been part culmination of this shared experience.
