Bank manager hour refers to the time of day when the sun is setting and casting a golden light over the landscape. It’s the most appropriate time for the bank manager to visit the farm.
In this new body of work, local artist and farmer Courtney Young digs into her and her family’s connection to farming, land, and land ownership. Young’s colourful, layered and textured paintings merge memories and stories of farms from her childhood as well as that of her own children. Young is interested in the culture and complex history of farming in Australia, its whiteness, and the dominating paradigm of property and possession.
