BRANXTON
by Charles Croucher

When the internet was in its infancy, we used to joke that the only information superhighway we needed ran through Nan’s phone.

My grandmother, a telephonist during the middle decades of last century, still wielded her rotary phone like a professional and was constantly up to date with the happenings of family, friends and the entire town.

My Brother calls this place God’s Country
A poem by Todd Fuller

Welcome to Branxton, we have two cemeteries and no hospital. This was the corner where I caught the bus.
Leave our bags in a pile, buy sweets, walk home. Repeat.
Don’t talk to Peter, he threw rocks at me last week.

That house belonged to Nana Dries, that one to Aunty Rita. The Thomas’s. The Thrifts. The Daggs. Wave to Rocky. I don’t know who lives in that one now, but I do know her dog barks at night.

In Studio with Ruth Ju-shih Li

Evelyne Schoenmann

Ruth, we met in Yingge/Taiwan at the last IAC/AIC meeting and you told me about your very interesting background and busy life as an artist.
As an artist I divide my time between my studios in Sydney-Australia, Taipei (Taiwan) and in Jingdezhen (PR China). I was born in Taiwan and migrated to New Zealand with my family when I was three years old, and then to Australia when I was ten. Having lived most of my life in Sydney and studied at the National Art School in Australia, I identify as a Taiwanese-Australian artist.

Left: Local artist Todd Fuller puts his love of hometown Branxton in the spotlight

TODD Fuller lives in Sydney and has had his artwork exhibited all around Australia, but his love of Branxton still burns brightly.

So much so, the 31-year-old's latest exhibition is a snapshot of Branxton - in his own words "a nod to stories of greatness there, to some weird things ... a nostalgic cross section of Branxton."

Fuller, 31, grew up in Branxton and lived there until he was 18 when he went to National Art School.
