A three-year project, exploring the family life and farming work, including the mutton birding practices of my Willis Family in the Furneaux Islands.
During the past three years Jane Giblin has explored the working lives of her extended family: The Furneaux Island Willis family and their community.
This, her initial project about the Furneaux, aims to understand how isolated geography encourages community traditions. The resulting artwork is a testimony to generations of family enterprise and character, but it is also a reflection of much that has changed and is still changing.
This project assisted through Art Tasmania by the Minister of the Arts.
