The Dry Dam Bedervale 2004 has the apparent simplicity of an iconic image – a picture that could be seen repeated across Australia in the drought years of the early twenty-first century.         Andrew Sayers

 

Bedervale

Bedervale [about 2kms from Braidwood town] was established as a farm in 1826 and boasts a splendid homestead designed by the colonial architect John Verge in 1936-37. But Walker is less interested in the place as an architectural locus. He takes his motifs from the painterly attractions of heaps of discarded tyres and from the calligraphic possibilities of gates and barbed-wire fences stretching across the paddocks.         Andrew Sayers
