Remembering: Rethinking a place in the sun
Alice Springs-based writer Kieran Finnane writes a tribute and homage to the work of Pamela Lofts who died on July 4 2012 of motor neurone disease. Since 1992 Lofts held 27 solo shows across Australia and was the founder in 1993 of the Alice Springs artist-run initiative 'Watch This Space'. Her legacy in the desert is profound with a singular and generous body of work arising from the contact zone between white and Aboriginal Australia. She will be deeply missed.
