Artforce artist Rachael Dale’s connection to Cairns Street, Kangaroo Point is a deep one – both her grandparents and great grandparents lived in the Cairns Street cottages in 1928, almost 100 years ago! Rachael has tied both sides of her family’s history together in her traffic signal box artwork – it’s located on Cairns Street where one side of her family lived, and features an image of her other grandparents’ house in Lismore, northern New South Wales.
“With this painting I’ve reconnected two houses, two families, 100 years, and one thousand good nights!”
