Anna Louise Richardson

We should be more afraid of the sun than the moon

Anna Louise Richardson has spent the majority of her life on a Cattle farm south of Perth. Richardson’s latest series of drawings fit within her broader investigations into familiar and domestic objects and what they tell us about our past, our present and our future.

The works, including household hazards from poison to power cords highlight the proximity of danger present in everyday life, particularly those that underline parental worry. Drawing objects that cause her anxiety for what could harm her children, Richardson’s oversized cut-outs in charcoal are placed on customised wallpaper representing a selection of her current works to date – populating the walls with a menagerie of animals that surround her children’s lives.
