Well, well is a latch-hook wall hanging which works through evidence left behind by my ancestors from their settling in the south-east of South Australia. Not only did they clear, hunt, and farm the land but they also sunk wells to access resources below the surface. The wry phrase ‘well, well’, combined with the echoing circles of wool, imagines the aftereffects of their actions over generations. Photograph Grant Hancock
