“All of these works have been inspired by fragments of the last red cedar tree from Cedar Creek, in one of the valleys of this increasingly urbanised catchment of Brisbane Australia. The tree, known locally as the last cedar in the valley, was destroyed by a severe storm event, ‘The Gap Storm’ , i 2008.”
