John Edwards exhibition explores colonial histories, myths and legends which underpin much of the Australian psyche. The stories of the travails of Captain Thunderbolt and Mary Ann Bugg as told within Edwards work, are vividly imaginative and reveal collective mythology central to the Australian underdog. "The trackers possessed an integral knowledge of the landscape so the establishment - the police force and the law – wanted to utilize this, to hire them to bring escaped criminals to justice." John Edwards, 2020
