Paddi

Paddi O’Leary is a resident of Millers Point and an active community worker. She is a member of Choir Rocks, was the organiser of the Millers Point Spring Picnic in September 2014 and is the coordinator of The Point is art exhibition. Her artwork is a slow performance piece that technically is a collaged timeline of community responses to the announced sell off and evictions. In essence this is a work that is in a state of constant expansion to allow the viewer a powerful sense of enduring protest and resilience in the face of adversity. Paddi’s work characterises the individuals who embody the community of Millers Point and it’s staunch supporters.
