Autumn on the Monaro

12 October - 3 November 2019
Finalist in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize

Autumn is a sign of change on the land, a signal that summer is ending. The colours of autumn are best seen in the European trees planted in groups throughout the Monaro area of NSW, or in the rolling hills of Tumbarumba, and all journeys in between.

 

In the landscape the purpose of trees is to create shade from the hot summer sun and protection from the winter winds. They are the passing images that become familiar, revealing themselves in the creative processes that inform this art. They realise an abstract simplification that triggers one's own sensations.
