Key change for Lucy



SIZE: 45 X 150 X 50 CM

PRICE: $45,000.00

This work is inspired by the story of the artist’s 3rd great
grandparents. William and Lucy arrived from England, at the southern tip of Manjaree (Bathers Beach), currently known as Anglesea Point, on the 23 August 1829, on the Marquis of Anglesea. The ship was pushed onto the rocks in a gale resulting in the loss of cargo and personal
belongings including the Glover’s piano. Having survived the shipwreck, Lucy miraculously found their cherished box piano on the beach the following morning. This work recognises the many settlers who arrived with little, as indentured servants in a strange new land.
