Waltzing Matila - Susan McMinn



..and the band played Waltzing Matilda…

Inspired by the legendary song “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, by Eric Bogle, this body of work seeks to represent the memories of a soldier as he remembers his journey through the tragedy of Gallipoli. The fifteen charcoal drawings engage imagery inspired by historic film footage of real events surrounding the arrival at Anzac cove. Through a pictorial storyboard, these works capture glimpses of a WW1 narrative. The charcoal drawings seeks to represent the courageous coming together of war enemies and the soldiers determination through the adversity of war. Through retracing the memories of a WW1 war hero this work encourages contemplation on the life of the Australian Soldier, as he is portrayed at an Anzac parade many years later, reflecting on his own life, whilst the band played ‘Waltzing Matilda.’
