Into the West

Showing 22nd Jun 2017 – 27th Sep 2017

Into the West delves into an experience of place, exploring a deep engagement with the raw, wild, coastal landscape of Tasmania’s rugged north-western tip. The work investigates a deep connection to the unique and isolated natural wilderness of the artist’s home, Marrawah.

The abstracted, ambiguous paintings speak of familiarity, drawing on memory of specific elements of the landscape, including landforms, native plants, weather and the dominant ocean. The paintings reflect an in-depth experience of a remote, unique part of Tasmania, while exploring a sense of identity, belonging and connection to place.
