Further information

The "motive" for this work arose from my recent visit to the United States and Europe, and a subsequent car journey through the Australian countryside when I was again struck by the paddock fences and repetition of the sameness of the rural areas, the distinctly Australian characteristics that so many artists have drawn upon.
Letter from Marleen Creaser, 20 July 1982.
