This piece of the collection screams hard graft. An old shearers kit - woolen Jackie Howe singlet, greasys (shearing chaps), an antique hand piece and it's fellow - a hand piece screwdriver tool - languishing south of Foveau Straight, the overriding image is more than just metal and material - it's blood, sweat and tears. The age of the implements gives the piece a timeless feel, representative of the hard work of the founding farmers of this country, as well as a nostalgia for when farming was all manual labour and subsistence living and not the technological science and mechanised function it is today. "Farming is the backbone of this country. Isn't that what they say?" "Tally recalls an age when the word 'gang' didn't have the connotation it has today. Back then the best-known gangs were shearers."

"The photographs I take are of sculptures I make. I build those sculptures by collecting found objects and unique entities that I transform into a large-scale composition, a composite that has nothing to do with the pieces it is comprised of. Once assembled, I photograph this new art piece and transform my photographs into limited edition, fine art prints.
You’ll find my artwork playful, layered and surprising. The multi-step process of making my art as well as the continual evolving nature of artwork that gets assembled and disassembled means that it has many lifetimes and requires closer inspection. This is important to me because I believe in making art that comes alive; quietly, overtly, dramatically or humorously. It should grab your attention and make you wonder about it’s DNA and process, but always in a joyful way."-Anna Church
