Artwork Description

‘Eucharistia’ by Tillian Clegg

The pink reflection of the moon in the turquoise pool
The open vase containing the philosopher’s stone
A medieval gittern* immersed in a lake
The moon’s shadow cast on the cloud
The hooded sequesterer touches a banksia cone with a yellow hand
A divining fork has taken us to this moment.
*musical instrument like a lute

Bread and wine motifs refer to the Easter ritual in which the body and blood of Christ are consecrated. Here the sacramental imagery of the Eucharist is intermingled with representations of the Australian bush. Cycles of transformation are always actualised through sacrifice – surrender of something for the sake of something else – and this work is an allegory of the endless cycle of breakdown and renewal of the bush.’
