Lindsay Farrell, Artist ‘Nailed Hand of Christ’ and ‘Giraween’

IMG_2967“This series of paintings are about Girraween and the source of the longest river which ends up in Lake Eyre. If you go up into the waterfall, you can see the way that water has come through the granite and formed this cross shape, at the source of the longest river, heading towards the centre of Australia to that once great, vast ocean. We can see a trace of history and time and eternity, where the journey is to become, almost, to the beginning again.

I was lying in bed here, at The Wesley Hospital, and reflecting that some 25 years ago I painted the hands of Jesus, on display in this chapel. The hand in that painting, is actually my hand. I did a drawing of my right hand… and I think that hand, that was held for me, is the hand that holds me….

Two weeks ago I was standing in the art gallery for a lecture about the Tintoretto Resurrection and I felt giddy. I had a scan and they said ‘Lindsay you have a brain tumour’ and I knew it was going to be a very different journey from that point.

I’ve been completely surrounded by those that love me and care for me. I’ve seen people minister to me in this hospital; it’s been a wonderful sense of meeting Jesus in those people and seeing him afresh each day. It’s been a wonderful journey for me, I feel so blessed to be here at this point.” (Source: Wesley Hospital)

Today is Diversity Day at my old school,St Joseph's College Geelong. I am proud that in this 50th anniversary of my Year 12 group my Alma Mater celebrates the diversity of its community.
As a Gay Catholic and life member of the 
St. Joseph's Old Collegians Association
 I join this celebration with a new generation of young men respecting the richness and diversity of our masculinity. #SJCDiversityDay

The post that scored more interest than religion, ,politics and sport in May:
”Learn a new skill” is the call during isolation. So, after 67 years I am finally baking scones like my dear old Mum.
The design might be a bit rough but you have to admit the presentation is straight out of Hyacinth Bucket’s Guide to Candlelight Suppers.

"Pushing the Boundaries" is going to be the title of my biography. Today I took another step in the journey of boundary pushing by applying to be a participant in the next Spencer Tunick PhotoShoot: Staying Apart Together.I was in the amazing 5000+ shoot on the steps of the Opera House back in 2010 so what better way to celebrate the 10th anniversary than an online event. No I am not in this set,but will publish our pics when they are released!!
