Selection of work to be exhibited – Jody Graham – After the Rain – series of works on paper using ink, sap, mad, acrylic and charcoal. 2018
After the rain, The Australian bush comes alive. Clouds part, birds flutter as insects look for new homes. Trees glisten with a wet sheen. Everything has been cleansed and a deep sense of profound new optimism is palpable. – Jody Graham 6/4/18
It All Adds Up is a collaborative, community rug I am making out of bits of string, twine, rope, old shoe laces and other similar material salvaged from streets, lane ways, bus and train stops, parks and or other public areas. This project has been inspired by a desire to create without spending. I am interested to see if enough string like material can be retrieved and contributed to make the equivalent of king single bed blanket. Names of people donating and location of string like material will be documented and recored as part of It All Adds Up.
If you are interested in participating please send me an email via my contact page.

Join Jody (Saturday 28 July) between 3-5pm at Art Est Art School and Gallery for the official opening of her exhibition Around the Block. This exhibition is a result of Jody Graham winning 2017 Greenway Art Prize – Inner West Council Cooks River Alliance.
Exhibition runs from 28 July to 14 August – 4/67/69 Lords Rd, Leichhardt NSW 2040
Around the Block consists of a collection of two and three-dimensional artworks. Works in this collection have been made from discarded material, rubbings, marks and text directly sourced from the location surrounding where the artist resides. Creating work from the Inner West area provides a consistent source of material and inspiration as Jody Graham endeavours to reflect the true character of the place she calls home.

Discarded protests against the desire for new and disposable, seeking a different narrative for the rejected and spurned. Work in the Discarded collection has been made from what would usually be considered rubbish. Rejected materials found in gutters, streams, laneways and the artist studio have been salvaged and modified into something new. The pre- existing character of items seized and reworked, extending life and adding to the history of what would commonly be considered redundant.
