Leading contemporary artist David Wadelton presents a selection of paintings and photographs capturing the architecture, people and character of Northcote and its surrounds since 1975. As a play on words, Wadelton began his first blog on the photo sharing platform Flicker and called it The Northcote Hysterical Society. Now a thriving Facebook page, Wadelton invites the viewer to engage and to share experiences and memories in relation to his work via social media. Wadelton captures the essence of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and today, via his visual journey down the High Street and its neighbourhood.
