Young Australian artist Fleur Childs was "staying at Arugam Bay, a remote beach community on the east coast of Sri Lanka, when the Indian ocean tsunami struck. With the works that make up Boxing Day, Childs relives and reimagines her experience of riding the wave that killed over 200,000 people." Childs is a graduate of the College of Fine Arts.
Her exhibition, "Boxing Day," is on at Sydney's Blank Space Gallery
