Sue Duffy took on a topic that was near and dear to her heart! The family bach (Kiwi holiday house!) Sue’s grandfather built the house and over the years it grew and changed and morphed, with the family and extended family’s requirements and whimseys, like the exotic swirls that cover most of the buildings, painted by Sues sister. It still stands today and is still in the family’s possession. Sue’s pieces were a recreation of the bach in 1:12 scale, a version of the same bach, unfolded in a smaller scale and 4 wonderful wall hangings that encapsulated the beach view from the bach’s front.
Sue’s artist statement –
There was a Time, there is a Place; celebrating family, DIY and simplicity in life.
“The Bach”. A 1”:12” scale model of our 60 years old hand built family bach place of childhood wonder and delight, family an belonging. Has so much time really passed?
But I was there, only yesterday.
“Bach Unfolded”. Someday, this bach will be dismantled: here deconstructed, unfolded, freeing the souls and memories of five generations….
“The View”. Its place, and its place in our hearts, remains.
Because this is where we began…..
Constructed from fabric and mixed media, appliqued, painted and quilted.
