e’ve all been there. On the computer, important things to do, important things to write and then a pop-up or banner appears. OK then, we’ll click that. A survey? Well, OK. A competition? Sure. Miss Universe? Why not! When the call came to follow up on Olivia Wells’ casual online application, made precisely as above, it was a shock. “I was actually planning essays for my year 12 end-of-year exams. We were in the nitty-gritty phase and I was off with the fairies for a bit on Facebook and just clicked a few pop-up ads,” Wells says. Soon after, the fairies were in touch and they had an offer that was too fun for the 19-year-old to resist. “I didn’t expect to be contacted after that, but they called and said, ‘We’d like to have you in the preliminary’, and then after the preliminary it was, ‘You’re through to the state final’. And then in the state final there were 30

stunning Victorian girls, and they popped me through to the national final, and I couldn’t believe it.” Wells is a scholar, an athlete and now, with the click of a mouse, a model. A successful one, so far. But a word or two of warning: don’t get attached to the idea and don’t mix up the order. It’s only for a year, regardless of whether she’s crowned Miss Universe or not. “The 29 other girls that entered Miss Universe entered it because they wanted to further their modelling career or TV presenting career. I was the odd one out in the fact that that never was my motivation to enter. “I’ve never wanted to be on Postcards or anything when I was younger. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. It’s almost embarrassing to admit that this started with just a laugh and no dream of becoming Miss Universe.” The game started getting real, though, when she realised in the lead-up to the national finals she could connect the two outcomes; her dream to be a doctor and the potential to use the increasing exposure “as a platform” to talk about the causes she will later address on the ground in Third World countries. She could put the “role” in front of model. “It’s the way of the world that, with a bit of cash and a name behind you, you can do so much more. While I would’ve done as much as I could as little old me without any of this extra media platform, it does help. You look at what celebrities can do and how much difference they can make just because they have a bit of a name. “I’m going to continue tutoring children from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and continue going overseas and doing volunteer medical work over there. While I would’ve done that anyway, having Miss Universe Australia in front of my name certainly helps.” Wells’ lifelong goal to study and practise medicine has made the beauty pageant experience less stressful. “I felt I was a lot more relaxed throughout some of the lead-up days and rehearsals than some of the other girls. I certainly had so much fun, purely because I wasn’t thinking about winning. “I said to my dad the day before I went into the competition, ‘It doesn’t matter if I win or not because in 10 years’ time I’m still going to be a doctor’. I still want to work in Third World countries. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. Why would that change now?” Wells’ mature world view is explained by a family environment where the children were “encouraged to have an opinion and openly discuss things”. “For the dads out there, talk to your daughters

about issues,” Wells says. “Let them have opinions. It might surprise you. I used to love when my dad drove me to school (at Loreto Mandeville Hall) and we’d have this 45 minutes or hour sitting in traffic and we’d listen to talkback radio and discuss things.” It’s hard to say which is more powerful in Wells’ armoury of strong first impressions; her beauty or her hard-edged determination. The second has the effect of galvanising the first into something more like a diamond than a softly calling siren. You become aware in Wells’ presence that pretty young girls in photo shoots are rarely, if ever, this self aware. And never this steely. Sleepovers and talk of Ryan Gosling is brushed off like dirt from the shoulder. If Wells has an obsession, it’s with owls, and it apparently dates back to “way before they were trendy”. She eagerly flicks through a gallery of owl photos on her phone to prove her point. It’s legit. Lots of owls. Despite the cuteness of the exercise, it doesn’t appear to be an act. When Wells was on Channel Seven a few days before our interview, she “didn’t even know who Chris Smith was” (chisel-jawed Myer model) and yet was deeply star-struck by the presence of maths boffin and legendary comedian Adam Spencer. “I managed to say to Adam that I loved his Book of Numbers.” The experience of fame on any level is pretty fresh to Wells, who is “still enjoying the novelty of being glammed up”. Far from an awkward subject in front of the lens, she has the range of a pro, changing expression with each click of the camera with alarming ease. Comely, to coy, to casual selfie to high-fashion cold, there is a confidence to her movements, but also a sense that she is treating this as she would a sporting contest: seriously and with total command of the muscles in her body and her face. On the topic of preparedness Wells says that, with the world title up for grabs, it must start now. “I didn’t do any form of preparation leading up to the national pageant. None whatsoever,” she says. “I was just myself. At the moment we’re just about to start the real preparation. It’ll be diet, exercise, hair, skin, nails, walking, talking, everything has to be perfect.” The self-discipline part is easy for Wells. Less enjoyable is the side of fame she can’t control: the haters. Since coming to prominence she has felt the unexpected sting of mean tongues, excoriating her, mostly online – the coward’s refuge – for being “too big to model”. “People are knocking me at the moment for my weight,” she says, but with strength. “It’s not a nice feeling and I’ve had a bit of a cry about it, but you’ve just got to step forward and be like, ‘No; I’m not going to let that happen’. Whatever you do, there are always going

to be people who don’t like you whether you’re in the public eye or not. You’ve got to be true to yourself and say, forget it, there are plenty of people that love me for who I am, and let the haters hate. “Every woman is critical of herself. Every woman looks in the mirror and there’s always something that we say, ‘I don’t like that’. Standing with 29 other girls, I was the biggest there and there were times when I thought, ‘Her legs are great’ or ‘Does she have that bulgy bit on the side of her hips that I do?’ It’s really difficult not to subconsciously compare yourself backstage, and judge yourself. I think that was the hardest thing for me to overcome. “The important thing I want to get across to young girls is it’s OK to not like certain bits, but you’ve got to be able to stand up and say, ‘I actually really like this about me’, or ‘My legs might not be great, but I love my tummy’, or ‘I’ve got great arms’. “Our bodies are incredible things. To just think about our bodies as these wonderful artworks, it’s more than just something to look at. It’s something that has these incredible functions, and can do all these amazing things. I don’t think we quite appreciate that enough to be honest.” Well-said, Olivia Wells, though you do get used to this, especially when a little bit of reverse snobbery is detected in a question. I had asked if she felt an ideological disconnect from the other beauty pageant competitors who have been less prepared to make a stand on this, or any other issue facing young women. Wells had said that the bitchiness she anticipated from other girls in the competition never happened. They were “pretty much all really sweet” and she had a “huge amount of respect” for them as people. A lot of respect? Is that the right word, when their world views and value systems differ so starkly from hers? What happened next is what the younger generation call getting “owned”. “Of course I have respect for them,” she says with raised eyebrows. “Just because they have different values to me doesn’t mean they deserve any less respect than I would give to a surgeon or a lawyer – or a journalist. “We all have different purposes, different attributes and attitudes in life. Whether you want to be a model, a hairdresser, or a neurosurgeon, or stay at home and look after some kids, we all deserve respect. That’s something I really pride myself on, that my parents instilled in me. “The world needs doctors, lawyers, models, hairdressers, and we all contribute to society in different ways. I can tell you now if there were no hair and make-up artists or baristas or mums that wanted to stay at home and raise kids, our society wouldn’t function. “For me and for my destiny, it’s medicine. I went in and spoke to university today and they asked if I would like to drop back and do a science degree and postgraduate medicine? I said, ‘No way’. When this year finishes, I’m going straight back to my medicine degree. I’ve wanted that for 19 years of my life. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted that, and this has been on the scene for a couple of weeks.” \ » Olivia Wells will compete in the 62nd Miss Universe Pageant at Crocus City Hall in Moscow on November 9.

fOOD \ kendall hill reviews the town mouse


n the doorstep of The Town Mouse, a newish arrival to the burgeoning off-Lygon strip in Carlton, a flagstone beckons passersby. “Come in for good times,” it promises. No false advertising here. Inside, the restaurant is compact and tiled and looks like a bar, but The Town Mouse can be almost anything you want it to be. Bar. Restaurant. Pre-theatre snack. Post-cinema nightcap this is and nibbles. Sunday lunch. Special occasion habitslap-up feast. forming I can imagine doing all of the above here, food and never being disappointed. The space was most recently home to French fine diner Embrasse, where I remember sitting in hushed surrounds and marvelling at the produce and precision involved in Nicolas Poelart’s culinary art. But it was never what you’d call fun. The Town Mouse takes itself much less seriously. The floor crew are here to show you a good time and go out of their way to do so. Sly jokes, disarming honesty, winning wine service and the ability to make all feel welcome are just a few of their talents. Unfortunately they can’t do much about the shrieking noise levels from the diabolical combo of tiled walls and terrazzo floors. Bring an ear trumpet if you have one handy. You may need it on a full-house Friday night. Central to the good times is a wine list compiled by talented sommelier Lachlan Barber. He has cherry(grape-?) picked plenty of fascinating drops from around the globe – often biodynamic or wild ferment or otherwise avant-garde. There’s an Alsatian white with the unpronounceable name of Mittnacht Gyotaku, a blend of riesling, Not so funny: gewürtztraminer, pinot gris and pinot blanc that goes Heirloom kales down like nectar. And I love the sound of Patrick (DArriAn Sullivan’s Breakfast Wine but it seems a little early, TrAynor) even for me. Dave Verheul’s cooking is the other key ingredient. It would make even the most jaded diner sit up and pay attention. Here’s a man whose idea of a bar snack is a mini profiterole stuffed with creamy-sour goat’s cheese, showered in caraway salt and thyme, and plonked on a drizzle of their own rooftop honey. Parts of the concept might be familiar but it feels completely original. Likewise the “heirloom kales”, a dish that sounds hilarious when described in full by staff but one mouthful is enough to wipe the smile off your face. It’s a plate of deep-fried cabbage leaves sitting on three types of kale and some “sprouted” rye and red Online Only quinoa. “We activate it ourselves,” the waitress says, » coming over all Pete Evans.

makes everything taste spectacular; eyes pop open with pleasure. Verheul’s school prawns are up there with the city’s best. Here they’re dusted in semolina and deep fried to the point where their shells become pleasantly chewy crusts. They’re doused in sesame salt and arranged around a central pool of garlic and saffron rouille. We clean the plate with our wet fingers. (On a subsequent visit I’m urging my date to have the kale – “you’ll love that” – and ordering the school prawns without a moment’s hesitation. This is habit-forming food.) Nothing I’ve eaten here is bad but some plates are not as good. Under the menu’s “raw” section, the shaved calamari formed into rosettes and teamed with blobs of oyster cream, dill and fermented apple juice is fragrant but not my thing. The cream seems a bit split, perhaps from the acid of the apple. Triangles of crisp, semolina-caked beef cheek are a tad too crisp, the meat inside too dry, but they’re saved by a white soy cream and a gutsy, gorgeous paste of black garlic.

The 12-hour lamb makes a lavish Sunday lunch. It costs $62 for 900 grams of fat-crusted shoulder that’s been slow cooked in a water bath with thyme, garlic, bay leaves, olive oil and lemon juice (I hope you’re taking notes) and then pan-roasted for another 25 minutes to give it a healthy glow and get the juices flowing. It’s served with a healthy side of charred cos and lemon zest, and an unhealthy side of tahini. A plate of roasted red cabbage stuffed with prunes and apple and drenched in melted parmesan, tips the scales to pure gluttony. If the roast and cabbage doesn’t do you in, the ricotta doughnuts just might. The size of chicken nuggets, they’re coated in sugar and cinnamon, stuffed with gooey ricotta, fried to a deep tan and then arranged on a mandarin cream fragrant with fennel. It’s pretty obvious why The Town Mouse has received only glowing critical reviews since opening in March. Add one more voice to that approving chorus. \ TO reaD MOre reviews

OuT Of 10 AUGUST 14, 2013 \ The weekly review 15


t began as a phone call to organise a time and place to meet up but, within minutes, we’re talking about us both being No. 5 in families of six, both being baby boomers, and about personal history that I was slightly startled to feel so comfortable imparting. This is Bernard Salt, the social commentator with an intense interest in the lives of others. And if this is the grit you get on the phone, imagine what it’s like to meet up with Salt and really unpack some stuff about the world and our place in it. Salt, 56, is a man who knows his potatoes, if you will. For years he has told us who we are, what we do, why we do what we do and whether we will keep doing what we do in the places that we do it. Through his hundreds of speeches, the many articles in which he’s been quoted, and his column in The Australian, Salt has held up a mirror to ourselves. Now I want to turn that mirror around and ask him to have a look at his life, his ambitions, his background, his journey. Salt lives in Camberwell, just a few hundred metres away from the share house where he and his then-girlfriend (now wife) Kym lived, among the leafy streets that so captivated him when he first arrived from small-town Terang, in Victoria’s Western District, and saw these streets of quintessential middle-class Melbourne. “I was No. 5 of six children in a working-class family,” he says. “It’s as vanilla as you can get. It’s almost like the working-class family from Central Casting. Housing Commission house. Never really had any expectations of further education.” His father, Bill, worked at a local co-operative shop and his mother, Brenda, looked after the children until taking a job in the late 1960s as a shop assistant at the same co-op – a radical move for a woman at the time, Salt says. “It had quite an impact on the quality of life of our working-class family,” he says. “We could afford to do stuff. Soon after getting the job, Mum went on a plane to visit her brother in Sydney, whom she hadn’t seen in 15 years. Someone from our family went on a plane trip. A plane trip! Interstate! “I look back on primary school and things must have been really tight. You don’t know it as kids, of course. We didn’t know any rich people. I didn’t know about private schools. We lived a very sheltered working-class life and very limited, which would be true of most country towns at that time. We were never hungry, never cold; we weren’t abused. We were just not rich.” His father died two years ago, aged 87, and his mother, 87, lives in Geelong. “They were the role models of the dutiful working class,” he says. “Very strong Catholic values. Not necessarily aspirational – they didn’t aspire to having grand stuff – but a very strong moral code about what was right and what was wrong.” The young Bernard had dreams of being a carpenter. “There were carpenters in the street building houses and I trailed around after a particular carpenter and I thought it was fantastic, all the tools and stuff.” Then he thought he might be a schoolteacher. “I looked up to and admired schoolteachers,” he says. But consulting won out. He found a rich seam to mine as a consultant – our history, our present and our future. A love of history is the bedrock of his thinking about society. His master of arts thesis was called The Divided City: A History of Class Division in Melbourne in the 1880s. He was transfixed by the idea of the two Melbournes: the opium dens in Little Bourke Street and, less than 100 metres away, The Block Arcade where the fashionable of South Yarra would parade and promenade. “This idea of there being two Melbournes really struck me,” he says. “And if I look back to my childhood I found it extraordinary that I lived this idyllic, happy childhood in a working-class family in Terang and then I realised there were rich people in Melbourne – another world entirely. I was quite struck by the parallel universe of society.” Salt remembers being taken by the beauty of the leafy streets of Camberwell and Canterbury.

He says it represents a change in the way a new generation sees itself. “Facebook is your shopfront,” he says. “Here is the personality and here is my shopfront and I’ve decorated it this way. Come in and browse around. Here are my photos. Here is what I like and don’t like. It’s curated. It’s manicured. People are continually investing in and tinkering with it. It’s like a car enthusiast, out there every weekend polishing his or her car.” Any danger in this? “I wonder whether this doesn’t lead to a narcissism or self-centredness – it’s all about me,” he says. “As we move from six-kid families to two-kid families to one-kid families, there is a natural predisposition anyway for there to be a self-centredness in society. If you add to that the digital world’s capacity to enable people to continually polish, package and present their persona, I think it does lead to a certain narcissism.”


he Salts have two children – Lachlan, 26, a lawyer with a city firm, and Zoe, 23, who is completing a masters in business management at Melbourne University and working part-time at a demographics advisory firm. “I wanted to make sure that my children’s upbringing and childhood and opportunities in life are vastly superior to what I had,” he says. “I know I have come from a struggling family to a comfortable family and the comfortable family is much better. I’m sorry, it’s just easier.” Salt spends his weekends reading or gardening or spending time with his children. “We’re very close as a family,” he says. Other pastimes? “If pressed, because I live in Melbourne, I’ll say that I barrack for St Kilda. Only if pressed, and only if they’re in the finals.” His work has him on the run and doesn’t leave much time. “I speak 120 times a year. Twelve times a month I am away. On weekends I get home and I don’t want to go anywhere. I don’t want to see anyone. I walk, I cycle in the area. I regard myself as very suburban.” Salt has been analysing the way we live since he was in his 20s. Back then it wasn’t cool to parade these thoughts. “I’d talk about all sorts of social issues – about how society is changing, changing values, changing generations, all that sort of thing – and the dinner party would go quiet,” he says. “Oh, OK, maybe that was a big-picture pronouncement. Maybe that’s not required at this intimate gathering of friends. “But what struck me was, by my 40s, there were television cameras and radio microphones wanting to hear exactly the same pronouncements. The world was not ready for Bernard Salt at 25. At 45 they said, ‘You can come in now, we’re interested in what you have to say’.” \

he word “physics” is enough to send shivers down the spine of the most capable student. But Ann Mathers insists the much-maligned subject has an undeserved image problem, particularly with girls, and is working hard to give it a makeover. As head of junior school at Mentone Girls’ Grammar, Mathers is bringing science alive for young girls who she says enjoy physics without realising it. Its principles, she says, simply explain how things function – which is not that difficult when you think about it. “It probably just needs to be called a different name … something like ‘the way the world works’ or ‘how things work’,” Mathers says in the bright office she uses to juggle her many roles. “Physics is the area that we want girls to be really interested in and exposed to. What we’re trying to do here is bring that in really early.” A trained scientist who helped introduce the first HIV tests into Australia during the 1980s, Mathers is perfectly placed to make a difference. She hasn’t looked back since becoming a teacher after four years of conducting and researching hepatitis and HIV tests. Mathers has always been passionate about science and at 50, an age she is relishing due to her experience and the boundless energy she still has to apply it, she also loves educating young minds. She speaks enthusiastically, dresses brightly and dots her office space with art, school work and toys for young visitors. In her current role Mathers oversees education programs, interviews prospective students, deals with any issues and – her personal favourite – has students visit with their work in the hope of scoring a “Mrs Mathers sticker”. “I need to keep in touch with the classroom as much as I can,” she says, pasting yet another sticker into a newly arrived work book. Somehow this teaching dynamo also finds time to steer the school’s SAIL accelerated learning program and its focus on STEM – science, technology, engineering and maths – with head of science Helen Silvester. It is the perfect fit for a life-long science devotee who thrives on keeping busy. Mathers grew up in Donvale when it was a new suburb; the Eastern freeway was still a work in progress when her parents, Meryll, a teacher, and Robert, an accountant, moved in. Mathers is the oldest sibling, followed by David, 48, Catherine, 43 and Sally, 41. They attended Donvale Primary School and grew up running through vacant blocks and playing sport. Mathers loved school and believes she was destined to teach. “As a young child I always used to play schools,” she says. “School was fantastic for me. I had lots of friends and did well.” Mathers was a house captain and loved sport, particularly swimming, tennis and having a kick of the footy with her brother. Weekends were spent traipsing from one sibling’s cricket, footy, tennis, softball or baseball game to another. Meryll stayed home when her children were born and loved it, but still encouraged her daughters to choose their own vocation. It was the 1970s and a generation of girls was discovering that there were more options to the traditional avenues of motherhood, teaching and nursing. Meryll and Robert, who now live in Port Douglas, made sacrifices so all four children could attend private 18 The weekly review \ AUGUST 14, 2013

schools. The girls attended Presbyterian Ladies’ College and David went to Scotch College. “Education was really important to them,” Mathers says. “That set us up.” PLC encouraged its girls to think big and consider medicine and law. Mathers became passionate about science and credits the school with sparking her interest, particularly a year-7 teacher who offered plenty of practical, hands-on guidance. “When I went to school I could just do anything I wanted to do,” she says. “It’s very much the same here [Mentone]. [But] you’ve got to be passionate about it. We were always encouraged to be passionate and do what we wanted to do.” After studying maths, chemistry, English, biology and geography in year 12, Mathers completed a degree in medical laboratory science at RMIT, majoring in medical microbiology and virology. The course had more female than male students. “This is even before the push for maths and science that came later in the ’80s,” she says. As part of the course, Mathers worked at the now-closed Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital and ended up spending four years using and developing hepatitis and HIV tests. When she started in 1983, the AIDS virus didn’t even have a name. “When HIV came in I spent a lot of my time in a big fridge because I had to get all the specimens out,” she says. “We tested back for many years. We didn’t know anything about it then all of a sudden we had to know everything about it.”


ventually Mathers decided that as a people person she needed more. She also wanted to share the knowledge gained in a cutting-edge science environment. So she trained as a teacher at Monash University and spent several years teaching chemistry, biology and maths at Rochester Secondary College, 180 kilometres north of Melbourne. Mathers thrived in the regional community and encouraged girls and boys, who had previously only considered finishing year 11 and working in a supermarket or on the farm, to dream big. “At every stage of my teaching career it’s been really, really important to make that difference, to tell them what they can do,” she says. After meeting her husband, Julian, in Echuca, they moved to Mirboo North where she taught at its high school for two years before having her boys Richard, now 21, and Andrew, 20. Lizzy, now 17, was born when they moved to Frankston South in 1995. Mathers was a stay-at-home mum for 10 years but served on every possible kindergarten, school and sporting committee. “I couldn’t stay away,” she says. When Lizzy started primary school, Mathers started some emergency teaching before winning a contract at her daughter’s school, Derinya Primary. In 2005 she moved to Haileybury, which had just opened its doors to girls. She taught upper primary classes but was soon promoted to deputy head of junior school. She also served as literacy co-ordinator and assistant dean of staff. The three Mathers children all attended Haileybury so it was a family affair as mum taught and helped with school productions and the human-powered vehicle

program. “When I started at Haileybury, it was just like going home,” Mathers says. “The boys went right through there.” In 2011 she moved to Mentone Girls’ Grammar as head of junior school, quickly putting her stamp on its maths and science programs. Lizzy also moved to the school for VCE and is now in year 12. She is music captain and enjoys the performing arts but, like her mum, she loves science and maths. Richard is a turf management apprentice at Huntingdale Golf Course and Andrew is a plumbing apprentice, but recently began to toy with the idea of teaching. Mathers uses the same philosophy with her own children as she does with students. “I just encourage the children to do whatever they are passionate about,” she says. “The one thing I’ve learnt is the more you push them, the less they’re going to do it.” To that end, Mentone Girls’ Grammar is doing all it can to make maths and science fun in the early years. It caters for all abilities and offers many practical ways to enjoy the sciences. “This program is about making the girls excited about physics and excited about chemistry,” Mathers explains. “We call that the ‘what if’ method of teaching science. What if you do this experiment …?” As a single-gender, single-campus school across preschool to year 12, Mentone can encourage girls to develop an interest in science at a young age and follow it all the way through. The program includes year 6 science captains and an annual science breakfast with a prominent female speaker. Last year’s speaker was Centre for Population Health head professor Margaret Hellard and this year’s is Professor Elisabetta Barberio, a member of the Experimental Particle Physics Group at the University of Melbourne. Primary teachers enjoy extra training to teach maths and science and students teach each other, with older girls preparing demonstrations for younger students. They also conduct experiments at home, filming them and showing the video at school. “The girls are just buzzing,” Mathers says. Mathers hopes that her efforts and those of other dedicated colleagues will encourage even more girls to choose science as a career and stay there. The key, she says, is flexibility, passion and never giving up on your dream. “You can do it all,” she says. \ AUGUST 14, 2013 \ The weekly review 19

landscapes into portraits Picture this \ Photographer Jacqui Henshaw has managed to combine art with the commercial, writes KIRSTY MANNING-WILCOX


acqui Henshaw’s photography has been on the radar of leading interior designers, graphic designers, architects, publishers, advertising art directors and property developers for more than two decades. Impressively, Henshaw is one of the few commercial photographers in Melbourne also to attract a strong audience for her fine-art photography. Her large-scale Manicured Visions piece at four metres wide by two metres high was selected by Bates Smart for the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne. The series has been equally popular with private collectors buying on a smaller scale for their homes. The beauty of imperfection inspires Henshaw’s art. “My Manicured Visions series explores the perception of surface reality and our inner world through the medium of landscape and still life.” Recently, clients have sought out Henshaw and commissioned her to capture their own landscapes, or “visions”. Late last year she showed her portfolio to

Josephine Robson, whose family has a riverside property near Kyneton. Robson loved Henshaw’s layered work. The idea for the commission was that Henshaw would find an image on Robson’s property, and give it the strong, layered treatment of her Manicured Visions series. However, Henshaw noticed the clients were drawn to her classic, intimate black-and-white images. For a few weeks, Henshaw visited the property, arriving at dawn to shoot at first light and then at other times to capture a look with the sun in different positions. “On this beautiful project, walking around the property at dawn was really magical. I could capture early morning frost and the blue crispness of the light. I could even see the patterns of the newly mown lawn. “It was also spring, so the landscape was changing every two days. It is very exciting to shoot projects like this. I like to visit a site at least three to four times at

MANICURED VISIONS Crown Conference Centre Boardwalk.

different times of the day to explore the full range of light and moods.” For each commission Henshaw presents 10-15 images to each client. For the Kyneton project, Robson selected an image of their jetty taken at first light. At first it looks like a classic landscape scene, but it is an intimate portrait of the heart of the property. Robson’s son fishes on the jetty and it is also a place where a recently blended family gathers to quietly sit or play about near the river. The final artwork will be produced at 1.1 metres high and 1.4 metres wide and will ultimately adorn the wall of their home on the property and may move to their new city apartment. “We were looking for a piece of art that would capture the essence of beauty of our property: the subject matter, the colour, the light, but most of all to evoke a sense of serenity. (Jacqui) certainly achieved this,” Robson says. Henshaw says the process of capturing a private landscape crystallised things for her. “In a way, it is an extension of my portrait work. It is an honour to be in someone’s personal space. It is a really intimate garden environment, which the family has spent many hours nurturing,” she says. “It’s a combined artwork with myself and the client.” Henshaw is quick to point out that she doesn’t merely FERNDALE PARK One of three images for the Iris Apartments development in Glen Iris.

For instance I collect John Paul Gaultier perfume bottles, others collect silver or glass.” She says she would love to do another project in a city home or garden, perhaps to capture memories of a beloved family garden and home before the family downsizes.
