Putting a Lid On It is an installation of book boxes, by Bundaberg based printmaker and book artist Catherine McCue Boes. Mc Cue Boes spent many weeks at two remote Australian gas plants photographing the impact these gas plants had on their surrounding landscape. As well as recording the environmental damage caused directly or indirectly, by their establishment.
McCue Boes’s installation presents her photographs in the format of book boxes. Placed together, the series of boxes, encourages the audience to peep inside some of the boxes and explore the hidden materials inside. The exhibition poses the questions: Is there an alternative tonatural gas production? And should we be exporting our resources overseas and at what cost to our environment?
McCue Boes is an award winning printmaker and book artist who has exhibited extensively throughout Queensland, Melbourne, New South Wales and Western Australia.
I am a collector of ideas, images, stories and events; these may lay dormant for many years until they are required. Locked in sketch books, photographs, objects and text, these concepts form my inspiration and eventual artwork.
