The Newell Highway runs from Rockhampton in North Queensland to Melbourne in Victoria, it runs very much west of the capitals (Brisbane & Sydney) and is the main truckers route spinning further west from West Wyalong in south-western New South Wales. Three images of found artworks taken on the road:

A huge array of collaged steel abounds in the front of this shed, no names, just the letters spelling ART on the shed – here’s a 4.8Mb .pdf click here. The next photo was taken in the shearers quarters at Sheene, just north of Hobart during a visit with Ann & David Kernke. They are from Ipswich, Queensland and have invested in this unique property which has the largest late 18th C folly – the beautiful gothic-styled stables and adjoining 19th C shearing shed, here’s the found art in the shearers quarters: and click here for the larger .pdf 

Finally, the third found art shot detailing two of my favoirite things – corrugated iron & typography. The town of Jerilderie is famous for two things, Ned Kelly the bushranger and an elderly couple who have specialised in collecting printed ephemera. Unfortunately they didn’t have a business card so I’ve not retained their names, their shop on the main drag is truly filled to ‘pussy’s bow’ with catalogues, labels, packaging, tins and kitchenalia + the cleanest public toilet in Australia!

Footnote: The business is obviously a ‘corporation of three’ – plumber, blacksmith & undertaker.
