is a series of images and texts that intertwine to tell stories of hope and loss, land and sea, death and rebirth.

Paintings by Wendy Donellan ( now Elizabeth R. Stein) showcase her exquisite use of colour and light to examine places and people both real and illusory. These images capture Australian and French landscapes and characters as they were, are, and as they exist in the realm of the imagination. Accompanying these images are a series of vignettes and short stories by her son J. M. Donellan, author of Killing Adonis and Stendhal Syndrome. These stories are presented both as text and audio recordings to create a multi-sensory exploration of the worlds into which the viewer is invited to explore.
