Story Vessel Artist – Kildare Ward
My artistic career spans 30 years and I have work represented in major collections that include the Australian National Gallery, Canberra; Gallery of NSW and Artbank. I have been a resident of Geelong for 10 years and in 2007 was commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong to produce the St Leonards 150th anniversary Commemorative sculpture (titled ‘Coles Journey’). The subject of ‘Belonging’ and ‘Place’ are common themes in my artwork. This project ’Connecting Identities’ is a unique opportunity to reflect on this subject with the privilege of local knowledge, shared experience and the promise of a deeper insight as to who we are as individuals and community.
