About the artwork
Casey Jeffery paints her inquiry of the stripe – specifically the striped fabrics of Brella window awnings found on many of the facades of inner-city and suburban houses.
Jeffery’s application of paint experiments with colour, line and depth, which tricks the eye whilst offering a particular insight of visual perception (deception). She utilises the structure and order of the stripe as a way of addressing notions of the past, the personal and the familiar.
The seemingly banal observations of the structures that are built around us can explain a lot about one's own identity and what it means to be here geographically in Australia today.
