The wall is complete! A huge thank you to Tony Gentile, Vos Constructions for fixing the ply to the wall. This was truly a team effort. Dan, Darren, Robert, Hedy, Sissy, Jo and Mark have all contributed to the design. Mark, Chris, Richard and Troy helped seal the ply. The final touches have been added. Jo has finished her reconciliation panels. She used her creative flair to incorporate ideas and to adapt the original concept drawing to the actual mural work. Robert has finished working on the ply panels. In particular Robert painted in a great deal of detail on the homestead, and also drew on his personal creative flair with colour for the dragon flies. The wall is truly a reflection of a community effort by the tenants of Common Ground Tasmania, Campbell Street and Goulburn Street. As the mural progressed, the tenants became quite independent and made their own artistic choices in relation to colour, form, layout and composition. Robert Kreshl has been pivotal in maintaing focus on the detail, and in providing ongoing commitment and support for the tenants. In the end, what began as a combined concept led by local artist Caroline Rannersberger, with the steady work by the tenants, the mural took on its own momentum. The wall has become a strong reflection of individual identities, stories and personalities, all expressed in a vibrant and varied palette driven by the tenants. The final stage was the securing of the ply panels to the wall, which was very generously completed by Tony Gentile, of VOS constructions. We were also very lucky to have the Mayor of Hobart, Damon Thomas, lend a hand. A very big thank you to Common Ground Tasmania for making this project a success.
