Entailing 200 litres of paint, 14 days, 168 hours, two lifts, 80 rollers and 10 brushes, the artwork which was created in August 2017, is the third installment in the PUBLIC Silo Trail.
Creating the artwork was a labor of love, requiring the artist to work around the clock atop boom lifts across the facade of four individual silos at Merredin wheat storage and transfer depot. “I took on the Merredin silos to contribute something to the Western Australian landscape and the State I grew up in,” Hughes-Odgers said. “This was an amazing opportunity to work at a gigantic scale.”
