About the exhibition

In urban and transport planning ‘desire lines’ refer to the unofficial paths that collective feet make through the landscape over time. These well-trodden paths are both subversive, being illicit, and conversely, the path of least resistance. Desire Lines are paths that form themselves and are evidence of both humanity and the impact of humans in the environment. The desired lines in these paintings are personal and reflective. The marks made by the paint brush, are lines with hindsight (hence the use of past tense). Expressing both what was yearned for in life and what has come to pass, as well as hinting at the unformed road ahead.

About the artist

Simone is an artist who has run an e-bike business from home for the past 14 years while raising three children and loves most things about living in the “People’s Republic of O’Connor” (Inner North, Canberra). You can see some of her work here.
