It is common to hear how art has helped cancer survivors or their families cope with a diagnosis of breast

cancer. This is reinforced in The Friends of kConFab’s main fundraiser for 2007 which will be an art exhibition

and auction in September as a lead up to breast cancer month.

About 10,000 Australian families carry a breast cancer genetic fault.

This means they have an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Australian scientists and clinicians working with kConFab have one of

the world’s best breast cancer research resources that allows them to

map the genetic make up of breast cancer. In May this year, kConFab

researchers were involved in the international discovery of five new

genes associated with breast cancer. kConFab researchers and

clinicians are also discovering ways to detect tumours at the earliest

stages and pinpoint the genetic and lifestyle factors that may help

protect against the disease.

Is someone you love at risk?

kConFab have only ONE aim…to prevent breast

cancer in women and men with a high genetic risk.

One in eleven Australian women will be diagnosed

with breast cancer.

But the risk is not spread evenly – those women with a family history

are at a higher risk.

Who we are and where we work

Cancer specialists and researchers are based at 42 public hospitals

and medical research institutions around Australia and New Zealand.

Outreach clinics are also serviced in remote areas of New South Wales,

Queensland, Western Australia and Canberra

How we will use your help

Because we are a national consortium, funds donated to Friends of

kConFab need to be managed by a national group such as the National

Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

The NBCF is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation established

to promote and support research of breast cancer. It has awarded

more than $20 million to new research since its formation in 1994.

NBCF will provide a legal entity for all funds raised to be held ready for

distribution to our research.

kConFab would like to thank the following people and organisations

The Friends of kConFab

Mr and Mrs Rod and Carolyn Menzies for the generous donation

of their Menzies art brand gallery for this event.

Amanda Slack-Smith - Victoria

As an artist I enjoy using digital imaging to communicate with my

audience, preferring to pose questions in the work rather than

answers. I am also intrigued by the integration of electronics and

kinetic sculpture and enjoy playing with all forms of new media.

This exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to give back to an

organization that helps thousands of people every year. I have been

blessed to have all my family members who have been affected by

cancer still with me. This gives me hope for friends still fighting.

Angela Morrissey – Victoria

I became interested in entering this exhibition after my own father passed

away from cancer on Easter Sunday of this year. He had fought against

several brain tumours, which affected his speech and motor skills. My

father’s illness was a different type of cancer to breast cancer, but still

upsetting none the less. It is extremely difficult to watch someone you loved

and looked up to for twenty eight years of your life, slowly lose their mind and

ability to communicate. This is someone who had a Social Science degree.

This is someone who, when he read to me when I was a child, would not only

read the story, but explain the grammar structure of the text! He taught me

so much! We come into this world as helpless individuals, and that is how we

depart.Time is short and one thing my father's passing taught me is: nothing

really matters anymore for we are only here for a short time.All we are is dust

in the wind. We come and we go. It is a privilege for me to take part in this

exhibition if it means that my art work can be part of something that will help

another family during such a challenging time. The painting is of a body and

could really represent any type of cancer. Moreover, it is a fairly asexual figure.

It could be anyone and as many people have come to realise - cancer

unfortunately does not discriminate.

Anthony 8 years old – kConFab family Victoria

My name is Anthony. I am eight years old. When I was in Prep two

years ago my Mum had breast cancer. My Mum is amazing and great

but when she had breast cancer I was sad. My Mum does lots of things

for me like playing basketball with me. I think I have the best mum in

the world-wide world.

Beric Henderson – New South Wales

Beric is both an artist and a medical researcher and a close colleague

to many health professionals working in the kConFab consortium. He

studied molecular aspects of breast cancer for his PhD (1990) and has

continued to study the breast cancer protein, BRCA1 since 1999. As

an artist, Beric tackles themes of isolation, alienation, and the

searching for meaning in life through drawing and painting. His

artworks are surrealistic and intended to evoke a mood or emotional

response. His art has been published in magazines and books, and

exhibited regularly since 2002. He is currently represented in Sydney

by the Wallspace Gallery, Surry Hills.

connecting with the vast range of female attributes and aspects that she feels.

Female warrior Sculpture

This breast and body plate made from wire and painted with a special

of strength and resilience, the Warrior Women, but at the same time

recognising the need for protection of female vulnerability.

Christine Sellman – Queensland

My approach to medium tends mainly to be whatever I choose to use

for the moment. I like to mix medium not so much haphazardly but

definitely without restriction. I began painting mainly as a figurative

artist. Instinctively I knew that I wanted to craft my paintings and that

I didn’t want to be restricted by matter. I allow all of my paintings to

be born of their own creation.

Dawn Evans – kConFab Victoria

I am a breast cancer survivor. Painting is probably the most relaxing of

all activities for me as it has helped me through some not so good

days. I find it is a past time where one can quite easily get lost in time.

My family was a great support and with their strength we travelled this

journey to good health together.

Deborah Angus – Sydney

Deborah Angus was introduced to Gai Waterhouse through mutual

racing friends. She relished the opportunity to paint the portrait as she

had been a keen lover of horses since an early age, competing herself

in eventing and dressage. “Sittings” for the portrait were done at 4am

trackside at Randwick. “It was such a special moment” said Deborah,

Gai would wander around, briefing the jockeys, intensely listening to

the rhythm of the horses – all this happening as the light came up on

the day. She was so generous with her time and so obviously loved

and highly regarded by everyone around her”

The portrait was painted as an Archibald prize entry 2004.

Gai Waterhouse – Horse trainer

“No-one can explain the thrill of owning a winner”

Gai Waterhouse was granted her licence to train thoroughbreds in

January 1992, fast establishing a place among Australia’s all-time leading

trainers. Focus, vision and unflagging energy have enabled Gai to capture

75 Group 1 winners, more than 290 coveted black type trophies, three

NSW Premierships and four Sydney Trainer’s Premierships.

Debra Moore - Victoria

Debra Moore’s career began in textiles as a trainee Textile Designer

before moving into the world of Graphic Arts. Expertise with the design

and construction of hand-made shoes was made possible by a small

shoe retailer in Carlton. Collectively, the richly textured and varied

possibilities of these original shoes, represents the enthusiasm and

ingenuity of this artist. Constantly working with, and pushing the

boundaries of surfaces, shapes and design, unleashed a passion for

Millinery. After several exhibitions at various galleries Debra was invited

to London to further her mastery in hat making with leading English

Milliner - Pamela Bromley.

Debra has been a prolific producer of artwork for the past 35 years,

exhibiting widely as well as completing many commissioned pieces.

Dominic 5 years old – kConFab family Victoria

Hello, my name is Dominic. Can I tell you a story? When I was four

my Mum had breast cancer and she was sad because she couldn’t

look after her family and see them all the time. The worst part for me

was that my Mom couldn’t go to the shop and buy me treats and she

couldn’t cook me chips. Now my Mum can do all those things again.

My painting is about my Mum. She is a pink lady.

Donald Cameron – New South Wales

Donald Cameron first met up with “Weary” Dunlop when they were

both working for the Anti-Cancer Council of Victoria. He attended

meetings under his Chairmanship, as President of VFAD, in his role as

State Director for Victoria “People Against Drink Driving”. A couple of

years prior to his death, “Weary” Dunlop came to Donald Cameron’s

studio house in Kew where he painted his portrait.

Donald Cameron has painted numerous portraits – including Sir Alan

Ramsay, Frank Menzies, Harold Blair, Ngaria Kunoth, Lord Craigavon,

Capt. Sir John Williams, Sir Angus Mitchell, Colin Healey, John Birrell,

Kenneth Jack, Sir Geoffery Newman-Morris, Rev. Ronald Woodgate,

Rev. Donald McCrae, Bruce Ruxton. He was a regular exhibitor in

Archibald Prize, Sydney and was hung in 13 competitions. On two

occasions, his portrait entry toured Australia capitals as part of

representative Archibald collection. He is represented in Regional,

Council and Private Collections.

Eric Mack – Victoria

While my mother was dying of breast cancer, and later when coping

with cancer of my own, I found that contemplating bodies of water,

which my mother loved to, always restored peace of mind. So water

is my favourite subject – and symbol of eternity. Associated with

Charles Blackman, Robert Dickerson and others in the 1950s.

Togetherness works is a painting from a series “Against the Odds” which

is how medical researchers and fundraisers work everyday, studying

breast cancer and raising money so their research can be continued in

the future. This philosophical image suggests that any help and support

from others, large or small, can be part of the corner stone towards

financing and finding a cure for all the various types of cancer.

Gaby White – Tasmania

My interest in art began with life drawing classes held at the Victorian

Artists Society in East Melbourne back in the 80’s. Influence has been

varied and complex, beginning with Joy Hester then moving on to Ian

Fairweather and Jean-Michel Basquiat. A new sense of freedom

emerged creating paintings that involve layers of colour built up until a

sense of balance is achieved. Abstract lines are then drawn with ink

to portray imagined scenes that border on the line of primitive. I have

a continued interest in the body and its recognisable features and

moods. Music is an essential inspirational tool in my work.

Hayley Coutts – kConFab Victoria

I took up life drawing classes at the school where I work in 2004. I have

no art background whatsoever but I saw drawing as a chance to take

a two hour break each week from my very busy life. The studio was

always warm and the models beautiful. While life drawing is usually

done in charcoal, having had breast cancer twice, I found I tended to

use a lot of pink in my work and I was encouraged to use colour by my

colleagues. I think that the human form is such a beautiful subject to

draw and I gained much pleasure from my time in the studio

Helen Braun – Victoria

We live and plan our lives according to both learned and perceived

patterns – what may be probable known models…of life, are forever

variable. Yet, awareness swims many waters – spillage is possible, even

probable. We splash through puddles, wade small floods….even

outstroke dangerous tides or sail unknown waters, knowing that the sigh

of safe shore is always a desirable possibility for opportunity, an

uncontained cup of life that is incalculable and priceless.

I recently lost a dear sister-in-law to cancer. Whilst I work at PeterMac

in Research on the second floor (a very short walk across the lift foyer to

the hospital wing on the same floor) she had many many treatments, and

eventually, a last swim, a final dip in the pool of life…oh so close, just

across the foyer. Her cup spilled over. Blottings and ripples of life’s

spillage are indeed an eternal and enduring, re-assessment for the living.

The inspiration for this work was my friend, a mother with young

children being struck with breast cancer, (she had both breasts

removed). I felt that the art piece should have some sort of shock value

to mirror the feelings we had when we first found out about her cancer.

I also wanted to do something positive and drive home the message

that breast checking is not a negotiable exercise.

Jean Mitchell – kConFab New South Wales

I am a missionary and also a cancer survivor, who has delighted in

dabbling a little with watercolours amongst artists, happy to share their

expertise, including positive criticism, with me! After my first

mastectomy in ’92, an artist friend at Port Macquarie came to visit me,

bringing a few tubes of colour, brushes and paper.

We had some lovely sessions together. I have always loved the beauty

of nature and found it both challenging as well as relaxing working with

watercolour for the first time. The beauty of contrasts of colours and

effect of light on a landscape have always fascinated me. In ’96 after

my second mastectomy, I attended some courses at the Relaxation

Centre and one, which I really enjoyed, was: “Drawing on the Right

Side of the Brain”. This added a further dimension, which I found most

helpful. e.g. looking at the negative shapes in the picture, even turning

them upside down, thus, finding more freedom, as one uses the left

side of the brain. It was fun producing these tonal paintings a while

ago....

Jenni Mitchell – Victoria

To stand in the heart of Australia at the white salt crust of Lake Eyre;

the edge of an Antarctic iceberg and to sip the ancient water of an

Arctic glacier has been the privileged pleasure and wild inspiration for

my life as an artist.

Cancer; it seems touches each of us – personally or through family

and friends. By painting or collecting art we can transcend physically

and spiritually; it takes us out of ourselves and opens new worlds for

our imagination and mind travel.

Jenni has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and overseas.

John McKinlay - kConFab Victoria

A feeling of helplessness swept over me when Jan got breast cancer for

the second time. What could I do?

The first time we had found reaching an understanding through the maze

of different professionals was difficult. By herself at consultations Jan

was like a rabbit in front of a fox. Being in terror underneath she forgot

the questions she had, and took in little of what she was told. I found a

useful role in joining her as the taker of notes and the keeper of the list

of pre-prepared questions.

But another primary cancer twelve years after the first – what was going

on? For three weeks I immersed myself in oncology texts and genetic

oncology literature. Not that I understood it all. From what I gleaned, and

some knowledge of family history, we thought it likely that the cancers

were BRCA1 genetic cancer. Now we had a joint project, to research and

document the extensive family tree on to Peter MacCallum’s data base.

This was to convince them that the expensive genetic testing was

necessary in our case. And so it turned out, also identifying the specific

gene to make family testing much easier. Jan has now had prophylactic

surgery to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, and the gene knowledge

has been passed out to family and down to the next generation.

Jan had her first breast cancer at the age of forty-nine, the same age

at which her mother died. Now we know why she died.

Painting, or any art work, is an absorbing hobby which totally involves

the artist – although I have always felt that one should move on into

interesting past time aids in this regard – such as painting.

My family became involved with kConFab after my breast cancer

diagnosis in May 2002 because my sister, mother and grandmother

have also had breast cancer.

Although I had studied art after I left the Air Force in 1993, it was

during my chemotherapy treatment that I first started experimenting

with photomontages. Beach Pattern, a photomontage of scenes from

Bribie Island where I live, was produced by cutting up and

reassembling small photographs to create a new image with strong

patterns and a sense of movement.

My aim as an artist is to provide an unconventional view of the world,

but one which people will find interesting and enjoyable.

Rhythm of life 60 x 90

The artist explored this new medium of artistic expression that she

calls “Recycle Art” during her treatment for Breast Cancer. This has

become her signature style.Rhythm of Life portrays the excitement of

life, like a dancing, explosive, celebration. Renewal springs from the

decay of death, creating new life, fertilised with the experience of time

and the memory of lover’s tracks much like the reminder of the past

on our DNA. The butterflies are symbolic of beauty, metamorphosis,

creation and survival. The stars are calling us to shine brightly where

we stand. Mostly it exudes the artist’s passion for beauty, harmony and

the brilliance of this wonderful life.

Lily Karedada (Mindindil)

Born c1937

Lily Karedada was born of Woonambal parents in her father’s country

around the Prince Regent River in the East Kimberley. She belongs to the

Jirrengar (owlet nighthar) moiety and her specific totems are the turkey,

possum and white cockatoo. Her bush name, Mindindil, means bubbles,

referring to the time when her father ‘found’ her spirit coming from the

water. Lily specialises in representations of Wandjina, executed in a refined

style, full of subtle tonal variations. Sometimes the Wandjina is shown

emerging from a veil of dots (rain) which also inundate the body. Both the

outlines and dotting are far more precise than the vigorous, gestured marks

of sister in law Rosie Karedada. A dotted ground is also characteristic of

Lily’s depictions of totemic species and the natural features of her country.

She is recognised as being one of the major artists of the Kimberley

region and has exhibited her work extensively.

over the years a number of friends have been diagnosed, treated and

are now living their lives in a new state of heightened awareness about

their bodies and there own mortality. To me, this painting “Life in a

Fishbowl” represents the feelings of exposure and powerlessness

associated with breast cancer and also the need for support,

understanding and love from those around you.

Mandy Shadforth – Queensland

Spending holidays as a teenager visiting many tropical international

destinations, Amanda would be inspired to sketch images in notepads

along the way. With her love of the outdoors, she often found her

attentions drawing towards the ocean and the seaside. Gaining so

much from the feelings of calmness and serenity that the ocean gives

Amanda, she hopes to channel these emotions from her surroundings

to the viewer through her artworks. Vibrant sun drenched scenes with

vivid contrasts of light and shade alight the viewer to feel transpired to

the real life setting. Amanda chooses compositions with interesting

view points, this may be an influence of her commercial artistry shining

through, as she is often commissioned to paint large Trompe D'oeil

both privately and publicly.

Parkverbot 27/32 etching

The upper panel of German text in Parkverbot (Parking forbidden), was

taken directly from a street sign in Zürich, transferred photographically

onto a copper plate, and then etched. The cloudy middle panel

represents the confusion inherent in the translation process and the

red bridge at the bottom refers to bridging the gap between cultures

when words alone cannot.

From Kasterlee XXV 1/1 etching

From Kasterlee XXV was one of a series of monoprint etchings created

during a residency in Kasterlee, Belgium. It is based on excerpts from

antique letters and postcards that I collected throughout Europe and is

a reminder of the time that was invested to sustain and nurture

personal relationships through the ritual of putting pen to paper.

Melissa Anderson – Victoria

Can nude and naked have the same meaning?

Nudity is a simple way to view humanity in its simplest form, in this

instance, nudity can only be portrayed as innocent. Nakedness

exposes the body we protect. We encase it in a veil of cloth producing

mysterious perceptions of what is shielded from the opinions and

judgements of our society. Nakedness is what we entrust to those we

are at comfort with, and expose to those we attempt to seduce!

“Innocence” aims to challenge the widely accepted modern day concepts

of female beauty and illustrates femininity of the true female nude.

Nadine Archibald – kConFab Queensland

I belong to a very vibrant and energetic art group called studio 8. I have

been an artist for 13 years and had three solo exhibitions one of them

in New York in 2003. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 and

a day prior to my diagnosis, studio 8 had a happy weekend painting a

large mural on a wall. We used a large piece of masonite to mix our

paint and the masonite board was left at my home. The board was

covered with a myriad of colours with all sorts of wonderful shapes and

textures. During my recovery I would walk past this board every day

and it would always catch my eye. It suddenly occurred to me it could

be turned into a contemporary or impressionistic painting of flowers.

During the weeks of my recovery I worked on that board and turned it

into a painting which I called – healing flowers – it reminds me

continually how working with paint and creating helped me through a

more difficult time in my life. It hangs in my bathroom where I see it

daily and it is not for sale.

on a dark and brooding background evoke a sense of foreboding and

isolation in a time of uncertainty. Relaying the narrative of the thoughts

and sentiments of the artist, the strength of emotion intensifies in the

progression of each painting in the series. Paintings from this series and

despite the turbulence and dark times we experience in life, hope

springs eternally like a beacon guiding us out of the terror. What struck

me forcibly when I took this photograph was the contrast between the

autumn season in Melbourne and the joy of spring in Cambridge.

Perhaps it is a lesson in how all realities exist in parallel and the

particular window through which we choose to look at the world

determines our experience of it.

expression and communication is an asset that I have come to

prioritize and nurture within myself and others. Through many difficult

times in my life, being creative has allowed me to find a restorative

strength within to cope and to heal. This sentiment is reflected in the

intuitive way in which I work and the sense of calm and harmony that

runs throughout my work.

This painting symbolises personal growth and seeing beyond our ‘own world’.

“The forest of life” is about looking beyond the daily chaos , mess and

confusion that distracts us from the meaning in our lives; the things

that prevent us from seeing that life is much more than what we

may be noticing.

It’s about seeing past the limited space that surrounds us and what we

experience in our daily activities. It’s about stopping… being still,

seeing through the blur and noticing life beyond our own sometimes

limited view.

Triecia Gibney – Victoria

I always intended to paint – one day. However life became busy and

there never seemed to be the time. Several years ago I commenced

working as a psychologist for the Lymphoedema Service at Southern

Health. My work placed me in contact with very special women who

over the years have shown me the value of fully embracing life and

living for the moment. I subsequently stopped putting off the things I

really want to do and made time for painting.

My work as a health professional is incredibly rewarding but it can also

be quite demanding. My art offers a vital balance to my life that

enables me to take time out and recharge, so I can continue to support

the wellbeing of the women in our service.

I don’t usually paint about breast cancer, but as I completed this painting

I found myself reflecting on the women who I have worked with. I suspect

some may underestimate the number of lives they truly touch.

Though her boughs may be broken her presence lingers on

Through each tiny sapling sown in her lifetime,

A sweet legacy of her being

Sandor Matos and Fattima Jarrari – Victoria

Matos is an artist with a European education in the classics and a wellestablished

reputation in both Hungary and Australia. Matos thinks the

future we are shaping today is mechanical, machine-like, pixelated,

more subservient to technology in all of its perverse forms and

increasingly less human. Jarrari approaches painting with

extraordinary energy, immersing herself in the canvas without thought

or intellectual baggage, giving expression and release to whatever she

senses around her. So what happens when an intellectual talent meets

a nature one? Jarrario’s boldness is raw and challenging. Matos adds

a rich glow, a subtle emphasis that almost caresses the pain.
