'Child in Known Environment' is an image in the series of works for people and their known environments. The combination of place and person was used to investigate ideas about locality and character. This work about people in rural environments follows recent work exploring responses to place in urban situations.

Research Statement

Research Background People Identity Place is a research-strength at JCU and as such the juxtaposition of images of people in their known places and environments is important to signify both the impact of the place on the person and how the person interested in sustainability adapted to and adopted a place.
Research Contribution The presentation of this image for people and place in the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery broadens the dialogue for our connection to place and contributes to further understanding of how these people live, work in their environment and respect their place. The portrait or study of a person in their own place links Townsville's cultural space with the broader rural region and people in this part of Queensland.
Research Significance This investigation is important in relation to Queensland locations. This is one of six people depicted in relation to place, one that they are closely and intrinsically connected with. The image includes the place where they worked and lived. The work was created for an exhibition titled (W)ink 22 February - 21 April 2002 that was opened by Roger Butler, Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings at NGA.
