Information

Brim Silo Art - Part of the Victoria Silo Art Trail.

Brim was the first of the silo art works to appear in Victroia. It was commisioned in 2015 and completed in 2016.

The Brim Silo project involved creating an artwork on a set of towering 30 meter high, decommissioned grain silos in the Wimmera region of Victoria. The mural aims to uncover the essence of the many social issues in regional towns across Australia. These issues include population decline due to the use of new farming technology and heavy drought conditions resulting in an uncertain future for many farming towns located in isolated areas of Australia.

Drawing from these issues the work captures the generational differences of those resilient enough to continue working the land, by representing a broad spectrum of the Brim Community portrayed in the archetypal form of different generations of the community, including an acknowledgement of the importance of female contribution to farming the land.

Aesthetically the artwork aims to convey the strong sense of community spirit discovered by Guido while spending time in Brim. The work fuses the different elements of farming life into the monumental structure of the now disused grain silo, which in itself is a historical symbol of the changing landscape of the Wimmera.
